GREENSBORO, North Carolina, January 6, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – QorvoÂ® (Nasdaq: QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today introduced the first broadband Wi-Fi front-end module covering the 5.1 GHz to 7.1 GHz bands for customer premises equipment (CPE). Qorvo’s new broadband QPF4730 can provide full frequency support for both Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E enterprise solutions.
In previous generations of Wi-Fi routers, each radio was set to a specific frequency, due to the narrowband nature of the solutions available. To enable wideband operation, manufacturers currently need to place a 5 GHz front end module, a 6 GHz front end module, and switching components. The QPF4730 flexibly offers full high band support while reducing board space required in Wi-Fi 6E upgrades. This improves the overall performance, capacity and flexibility of the system.
Tony Testa, Technical Marketing Director of Qorvo, said: âQorvo’s latest FEM is optimized to run on 5 GHz, 6 GHz or both, to maximize system capacity and throughput, which is not possible in existing CPE designs. Qorvo’s QPF4730 is the first in a family of new products that will meet the operational and architectural flexibility of 6E Wi-Fi channels and include solutions for home gateways, routers and mesh systems.
The QPF4730 improves the efficiency of Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E architectures and is optimized for Power over Ethernet (PoE), improving quality of service (QoS), range and throughput. This solution maximizes user capacity and leverages all available spectrum. It also allows manufacturers to design form factors smaller than current gateways to meet user expectations for more compact, stylish and efficient designs. With its extended spectrum, Wi-Fi 6E delivers higher throughput while serving more customer connections in home, campus and corporate environments.
