Qualcomm today introduced the RF360, a radio frequency chip for 4G LTE mobile devices that supports multiple networks in the world.
Qualcomm RF front end solutions designed to increase performance and simplify RF OEM companies in developing multiband and multimode mobile devices, Qualcomm said in a statement on Friday.
RF360 radio frequency chip that already supports seven modes for the entire cell, including LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1X, TD-SCDMA, and GSM / EDGE.
Qualcomm said the solution is designed RF360 is more efficient in power consumption and performance have increased to 50 percent better than the previous generation.
"A wide range of radio frequencies used to implement a global network of 2G, 3G and 4G LTE presents ongoing challenges for designers of mobile devices. 2G and 3G technologies Where each has been implemented on a 4 to 5 different global RF bands, the inclusion of LTE brings the number of bands cell to be about 40, "said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies Inc..
Qualcomm confirms that the RF360 chip will be launched to the market in the second half of this year.
Today, Qualcomm also announced other new products, WTR1625L chip, RF transceiver devices that consume battery power 20 percent more efficient than the previous generation.
In earlier days, Qualcomm also unveiled two new mobile processors, Snapdragon Snapdragon 400 and 200.
