Demand for wireless connectivity bandwidth continues to rise to support applications such as work from home, cloud computing, multi-player AR/VR, and 4K/8K video streaming.
Wi-Fi 6E & 7 standards make use of higher frequency bands, broader channels, new modulation schemes, and multi-link operation.
QuantalRF™ introduces disruptive RF technology designed to maximize Wi-Fi performance. We provide the most power-efficient, compact, and cost-effective fully integrated front-ends and antennas to deliver the highest possible data rates over maximum range.
With the increased demands in wireless communications, the need for improved data rate and network capacity has resulted in a higher number of frequency bands. A key advantage of the new bands for Wi-Fi 6E/7 and 5G UHB is their capacity to enable greater bandwidth and higher throughput than previous generations.
As new frequency bands are being unlocked around the world for Wi-Fi (5.9-7.2 GHz) and 5G (around 3-5 GHz), the industry is grappling to design RF filters capable of adequately filtering interference to efficiently operate in those bands.
To prevent radio communication failure and block-outs, external acoustic-wave RF filters are conventionally adopted. As these filters are not tunable, they result in increased area, cost, and introduce significant signal loss. Additionally, these filters lack the ability to suppress interference from adjacent RF channels and limiting performance in wide-band systems.
Furthermore, most RF Power Amplifiers (PA) suffer from non-linearity at the needed output powers for these bands, which is only being partially compensated by complex digital pre-distortion schemes.
Consequently, the introduction of an increased number of bands, aimed to generate improved capacity, has prevented the user from experiencing the true performance potential of their devices.
QuantalRF, leveraging its Quantal™ Technology, is the first company to provide complete RF front-end solutions, including PA and filtering, fully designed in CMOS SOI at frequencies ranging from sub-GHz up to mmWave.
The patented Quantal Amplifier technology includes highly linear receive and transmit paths. Our interference resilience techniques and tunable filtering technology provide sharp on-chip filtering and reducing the need for external acoustic-wave filtering components. In addition, our patented Power Amplifier technology, with its superior linearity and efficiency, allows the system to offload the need for any pre-distortion or digitally assisted linearization methods.
With the highest level of integration in CMOS SOI, reduced size, and boosted system performance, QuantalRF’s unique RF front-end solutions are ideal for applications such as Wi-Fi 6E / 7 and 5G UHB. Combined with our system expertise and the industry’s most innovative scalable technology, we solve the challenges associated with the next generation of RFIC chipsets.
Quantal Technology enables new possibilities through an unexplored path of innovative and scalable integrated designs delivering superior true speed and range while reducing overall power dissipation.
