“Our portfolio reduces the need for thermal management, helping our customers design smaller, more attractive products without internal fans, ” says Qorvo’s Cees Links.
Qorvo’s bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters allow full power output across all Wi-Fi channels, helping consumers receive reliable Wi-Fi service through the entire home. This helps to cut support costs and increase consumer satisfaction.
“About 40% of all operator service calls relate to poor Wi-Fi performance in the home,” Links said. “With improved coverage, operators can reduce expensive truck rolls and service calls, which cost an average of $15-$35 in addition to any repeater/extender hardware required.”
802.11ax will greatly increase network capacity by supporting up to eight simultaneous data streams, each delivering up to 1.2 Gbps, to connect many more devices at greater speeds. Qorvo’s broad 802.11ax portfolio includes 2.4GHz and 5GHz front-end modules (FEMs) and BAW filters.
The portfolio’s high energy-efficiency FEMs reduce the thermal issues associated with supporting multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) in Wi-Fi equipment, allowing manufacturers to reduce product size and cost.
Qorvo’s BAW bandedge and coexistence filters improve Wi-Fi quality of service and prevent interference with adjacent LTE frequencies.
