Delivering Unmatched Performance and Scalability to Meet Global Demand
Greensboro, NC - January 11, 2021 - Qorvo®
(Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative solutions that connect and power
the world, today introduced two
Wi-Fi 6E front end modules (FEMs) designed to maximize throughput and range
in high-bandwidth applications such as 8K video streaming, online gaming and
Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of Wi-Fi 6 that operates in the recently opened
6 GHz frequency band, in addition to the traditional 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
bands. Wi-Fi 6E triples Wi-Fi capacity with contiguous spectrum to accommodate
7 additional 160 MHz-wide channels or 14 additional 80 MHz channels.
Qorvo's Wi-Fi 6E FEMs unleash the full potential of this new spectrum, delivering
leading linearity performance and maximizing throughput and capacity at peak
permissible indoor power levels.
The Qorvo QPF4656 and QPF4632 deliver robust and rugged performance with
world-class energy efficiency, and the highest speed and throughput at the maximum
power levels supported by Wi-Fi 6E's extended bandwidth. The QPF4656 is designed
for consumer Wi-Fi 6E routers and gateways. The QPF4632 is designed for enterprise
power-over-ethernet (POE) Wi-Fi 6E products and applications.
The Qorvo Wi-Fi 6E FEMs deliver up to 25% more power efficiency than current
solutions in compact packaging, enabling cost, size and thermal performance
advantages in consumer and enterprise wireless networking solutions.
Cees Links, general manager of Qorvo's Wireless Connectivity business, said,
"Qorvo's new Wi-Fi 6E FEMs deliver on the Wi-Fi 6E promise to enable high-bandwidth
applications with faster data speeds and lower latency—and in smaller, more
rugged form factors. Consumers and businesses will see significant improvements
in home entertainment, gaming and social experiences."
The QPF4656 and QPF4632 FEMs are sampling now.
