Samsung announces next-gen commercial 5G RFIC chip
Over the past years, Samsung Electronics has proved to be one of the key frontiers of 5G innovation. Recently, the company announced their new 5G Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit (RFIC) chip. Samsung will use it to commercialize 5G technology for required base stations and other radio access products.
As Samsung announces commercial 5G RFIC chip, the company hopes to strengthen overall 5G access. The announcement was made at a 5G mobile technologies workshop held at the Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences. Details on the designs and innovations of the chip were presented, with emphasis that the chip is critical for developing commercial 5G mobile communication products.
“Samsung has been hard at work for several years on the various foundation technologies that go into the 5G RFIC,” said Paul Kyungwhoon Cheun, Executive Vice President and Head of Next Generation Communications Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “We’re excited to finally bring all the pieces together and announce this important milestone on the path to commercial 5G. This will have a big role to play in the upcoming connectivity revolution.”
What does the 5G RFIC chip bring?
The next-gen RFIC chip is designed to strengthen overall performance of 5G access units (the 5G ‘base station’). According to the company, the design is made at low costs, is compact and delivers high efficiency. Each of these aspects is vital in enhancing the latency and quality 5G connectivity.
Samsung announced breakthrough in RFIC chip innovation in June last year. This development enabled chips to incorporate a high-gain and high-efficiency power amplifier. With this, the chip can provide extended coverage in the millimeter waveband (mmWave) , overcoming one of the primary challenges of high frequency spectrum. It is also capable of greatly improved connectivity for transmission and reception.
RFIC chips reduce phase noise to allow clearer radio signals, even in noisy environments. Noisy environments can otherwise disrupt existing high-speed communications. The chips have compact designs, with a chain of 16 low loss antennae, which further enhance efficiency and performance.
The new 5G RFIC chip will use Radio Frequency in the 28GHz mm waveband. It will target 5G markets such as the U.S., Korea and Japan. According to the company’s news website, the first RFIC-equipped solutions are expected to be announced early next year.
Samsung will use these next-gen chips to develop ultra-tangible services, such as ultra-high definition (UHD) video streaming, augmented reality, virtual reality and hologram technologies.http://www.cellwebstar.com/samsung-announces-next-gen-commercial-5g-rfic-chiphttp://www.cellwebstar.com/wp-content/uploads/5G-RFIC-chip.jpghttp://www.cellwebstar.com/wp-content/uploads/5G-RFIC-chip-150x150.jpgPhone news5G,5G TechnologyOver the past years, Samsung Electronics has proved to be one of the key frontiers of 5G innovation.
