A New Generation Of 5G Filter Technology
By Qorvo

5G implementation is accelerating worldwide, creating new challenges for wireless technology in mobile devices. As these trends increase, space available for the RF front end (RFFE) is shrinking, which means filters must also become smaller and more highly integrated. RF filters also need to handle higher power to maintain adequate design margins and maximize handset operating range. Bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters are evolving to address these challenges, along with other approaches such as antenna routing and antenna tuning.
