Delivering Unmatched Performance and Scalability to Meet Global Demand
Greensboro, NC - January 11, 2021 - Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider
of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today introduced a family
of high-performance low noise amplifiers (LNAs) tailored for base station infrastructure
deployments including 5G massive MIMO (m-MIMO). Qorvo's newest family of LNAs
combines the lowest noise figure in the industry - 0.3 dB achieved at 2 GHz
- with unmatched reliability and scalability in a very compact footprint.
The flagship QPL9547 LNA utilizes Qorvo's latest generation enhancement-mode
pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (pHEMT) process to provide market-leading
noise figure and improved receiver sensitivity for cellular base stations. This
LNA is internally matched and is available in a compact, 2 mm x 2 mm package
to provide space savings for system designers. Additional LNAs in the product
family such as the QPL9057,
QPL9504 are optimized to provide high
gain and disable pins required for 5G wireless infrastructure.
Joe Madden, chief analyst at Mobile Experts, Inc., said, "In 5G networks,
the uplink is the limiting factor, and massive MIMO makes the uplink even
more critical. A combination of low noise figure and high dynamic range is
the key to maximizing the coverage of a 5G network. We expect the market to
require large numbers of this type of LNA, as massive MIMO ramps up
Roger Hall, general manager of Qorvo's High Performance Solutions (HPS) business,
said "The release of these third-generation LNAs makes it easier for our
customers to design and deploy their 5G solutions. This LNA family helps
ensure that data transfer will be seamless and reliable, prompting customer
QPL9504 are in production now and are available
for immediate delivery.
The global deployment of 5G networks is driving demand
for Qorvo's entire portfolio of high-performance RF solutions, including GaN
high-power amplifiers and GaAs front-end modules (FEMs). Qorvo's 5G portfolio
offers the efficiency, reliability and compact size needed for base station
manufacturers and network operators to increase capacity and expand coverage.
It also provides complete solutions for new 5G smartphones, including low-band,
mid-high and ultra-high-band FEMs; transmit-receive modules; and antenna control
solutions that enable innovative new designs, enhanced performance and faster
time to market.
Qorvo (Nasdaq: QRVO) makes a better world possible by providing
innovative Radio Frequency (RF) solutions at the center of connectivity. We
combine product and technology leadership, systems-level expertise and global
manufacturing scale to quickly solve our customers' most complex technical challenges.
