12. NOV 2019

Presentation Hall B1 SEMICON EUROPA > Technology for Communication > Technology for Communication

16:35-17:00 h | Hall B1 Tech Arena 2, Booth B1.770

Subjects: SEMICON EUROPA

Type: Presentation

Speech: English

The telecom infrastructure market has not moved much in the past decade interms of the value of operators’ investments. Customer pricing also keeps decreasing, and building new infrastructure keeps showing smaller and smaller returns on investments for telecom operators. In this context, an attempt to create new markets and enlarge operators’ reach to customers beyond hand sets created 5G.The global landscape at network level will not move much before 2025. But it will definitely change in terms of technology and antenna systems, thus completely restructuring the radiofrequency (RF) component industry. On one hand frequencies are going from less than 3 GHzto up to 6 GHz for macro deployments, while small cells exploit millimetre-wavelengths (mm-waves). Meanwhile RF line power levels in front-ends will decrease from a few hundred watts to down to a few watts in macro site antenna systems, thanks to massive MIMO and active antenna systems implementation.At Hand set level, the main phone manufacturers differentiate from each other on the RF field by adopting either an integrated or a discrete approach. The market leaders Samsung, Apple, as well as smaller OEMs such as Sony, LG, Google or ZTE are moving towards integration using complex RF modules from Broadcom, Skyworks, Qorvo, Qualcomm and Murata, while the markets challengers, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, which drive as much volume as the market leaders, differentiate by favouring a discrete approach whenever possible.In our presentation, we will review how 5G is reshaping the RF Front-End industry. We will explain the positioning of the main component and module suppliers and review the technology mix needed to support 5G (Bulk Silicon, SiGe, GaAs, RFSOI, GaN,…) both at Telecom Infrastructure level and Hand set level.
