Getting to 5G: Comparing 4G and 5G System Requirements

Read full article here

5G isn’t just an incremental improvement over 4G — it’s the next major evolution of mobile communication technology with performance improvements of several orders of magnitude over today’s networks. 5G does not replace 4G, it simply enables a huge diversity of tasks that 4G cannot perform. 4G will continue to advance in parallel with 5G, as the network to support more routine tasks. 5G will enable services yet to be imagined, in a world where national economies are driven by sophisticated communications networks.

Let’s explore what 5G technology is, compare some of the characteristics of 4G and 5G, and look at the path to 5G deployment.

What 5G Technology Is

5G RF For Dummies®, Qorvo Special Edition

  • Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) requiring hundreds of megahertz (MHz) of channel bandwidth using new frequencies for mobile wireless — from 2.5 gigahertz (GHz) for 4G LTE Pro and 3.5GHz for 5G, to tens of gigahertz and beyond into the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum
  • Ultra efficient for streaming data, taking full advantage of carrier aggregation (CA) and massive multiple input/multiple output (MIMO)
  • Fixed wireless, giving more choices to get 20 gigabit per second (Gbps) connections to your home and business
  • Wireless infrastructure, using beam steering and high-power gallium nitride (GaN), ideally suited to adaptive-array steerable antennas
  • Low latency for real-time connections enabling autonomous vehicles and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR)
  • Internet of Things (IoT) connecting more than a trillion devices to the Internet in the next ten years with extremely low data rates, battery life greater than ten years, and the longest possible communication range

Qorvo® Lowers Telecom Infrastructure Costs with New Power-Efficient GaN-on-SiC Amplifier

DUAL-TRANSISTOR MODULE DELIVERS UNPARALLELED PERFORMANCE FOR MACRO BASE STATION DESIGN

GREENSBORO, NC – August 10, 2017 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today introduced a new asymmetric Doherty amplifier that enables customers to achieve ultra-high levels of power efficiency in the design of wireless base station equipment. The next-generation gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) solution features two transistors in a single package to maximize linearity, efficiency and gain, and ultimately reduce operating costs.

According to Eric Higham, Strategy Analytics service director, “GaN devices can handle more power than other high-frequency technologies like GaAs and InP, with better frequency performance characteristics than other power technologies like LDMOS.”1

Roger Hall, Qorvo’s general manager, High Performance Solutions, said, “Today’s telecommunications infrastructure design is all about achieving power efficiencies that reduce costs. Our customers tell us that the new GaN-on-SiC QPD2731 transistor achieves these goals as operators bring more capabilities online.”

Customers are increasingly moving to GaN-on-SiC in order to realize significant improvements in performance, linearity and efficiency for wireless base stations compared to LDMOS and GaN-on-Si, which have poor thermal characteristics. The QPD2731 addresses this shift with pre-matched, discrete GaN-on-SiC High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMTs). The new amplifier, currently available for sampling, provides the highest performance available in its operating range of 2.5 to 2.7 GHz.

The QPD2731 can be linearized by standard, commercially available, third-party DPD systems, as previously announced by Qorvo.

QPD2731 Features
Operating Frequency Range 2.5 – 2.7 GHz
Peak Doherty Output Power 55.0 dBm (316 W)
Doherty Drain Efficiency 60.0% (47.5 dBm)
Doherty Gain 16.0 dB
4-lead, earless, ceramic flange NI780 package

Qorvo offers a broad portfolio of GaN discrete transistor products with varying levels of power, voltage and frequency ratings, in both die-level and packaged solutions. More information about these products is available at: http://www.qorvo.com/products/discrete-transistors/gan-hemts.
