Supporting up to 5 gigabits per second download speeds, the Snapdragon X50 5G modem can provide a vastly more immediate connection between the user and the cloud, opening up the possibilities of an entirely new generation of applications and services.
The Snapdragon X50 5G modem, paired with up to 4 QTM052 mmWave antenna modules, supports advanced mobility features including beam forming, beam steering and beam tracking which are engineered to improve mmWave signal range and coverage, making mobile mmwave viable and ready for large-scale commercialization.
The Snapdragon X50 5G modem is designed to support the next generation of mobile devices. When paired with a Snapdragon processor with an integrated Gigabit class LTE modem, the complete Snapdragon X50 5G platform can provide multi-mode 4G/5G capability via dual connectivity. In fixed wireless applications, the Snapdragon X50 5G modem can replace fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) installations with wireless 5G connections.
The QTM052 mmWave antenna module family and the Qualcomm® QPM56xx sub-6 GHz RF module family combine with the Snapdragon X50 5G modem to deliver modem-to-antenna capabilities across several spectrum bands, in a very compact footprint that is suited for integration in mobile devices.
