GREENSBORO, N.C., and HILLSBORO, Ore., Nov. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo®, Inc. (NASDAQ:QRVO), a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, today announced that LG Electronics has selected Qorvo's RF Fusion™ Mobile Wi-Fi integrated Front End Module (iFEM) for the Nexus™ 5X smartphone. Qorvo® is a leader in the transition to highly integrated front end modules for Wi-Fi, and Qorvo's newest RF Fusion Mobile Wi-Fi iFEM, the TQF6174, delivers higher performance than discrete components while saving space and simplifying design for leading smartphone manufacturers.
"Qorvo is uniquely positioned to design and manufacture all the high-value components in the integrated front end, including high-performance filters, switching and amplification," said Eric Creviston, president of Qorvo's Mobile Products group. "Qorvo's TQF6174 iFEM is leading the transition to more highly integrated mobile Wi-Fi front-end solutions, and Qorvo is very pleased to support LG with the highest levels of performance and integration."
Qorvo's TQF6174 RF Fusion™ Mobile Wi-Fi iFEM provides a new level of integration and performance in the mobile Wi-Fi front end. The TQF6174 iFEM combines a Wi-Fi coexistence filter, 5GHz power amplifier, 5GHz low noise amplifier (LNA), diplexer, switch and coupler in a compact 4mm x 3mm package. All of Qorvo's RF Fusion™ front end solutions combine best-in-class power amplifiers, filters, and switches to deliver industry-leading performance and size.
The Wi-Fi coexistence filter in the TQF6174 iFEM leverages Qorvo's proprietary LowDrift™ BAW technology to address the design challenges related to interference between Wi-Fi and the adjacent LTE bands (7, 40 and 41) used in China, North America and elsewhere. Qorvo's coexistence filters deliver superior insertion loss and improved power added efficiency (PAE) and power output, helping smartphone manufacturers to extend battery life and maximize data throughput across the full 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi spectrum. All of Qorvo's LowDrift™ and NoDrift™ premium BAW filters combine high performance and temperature stability to solve coexistence challenges unaddressed by other technologies.
According to an LG spokesperson, "Qorvo's innovative Wi-Fi iFEM helped LG successfully realize our vision of the next-generation Nexus smartphone. Qorvo worked closely with us to meet our requirements, while offering an enhanced solution to reduce the complexity of product development."
Qorvo® co-architects and tunes the best-in-class components in the TQF6174 to drive higher overall system performance. The Company employs proprietary wafer-level packaging (WLP) and CuFlip™ flip-chip technology to reduce module size, resulting in a footprint that is 24% smaller in a 2X2 MIMO configuration than comparable discrete solutions.
Qorvo's highly integrated RF solutions simplify design, reduce product footprint, conserve power and improve overall system performance in smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The Company offers customers a unique combination of broad manufacturing scale, deep systems-level expertise, and the industry's most comprehensive product and technology portfolio, helping mobile device manufacturers accelerate delivery of next-generation products.
