Applications

 

Newlans has assembled a Team with deep experience and knowledge in developing high volume SOI (Silicon-on-Insulator) semiconductor solutions for Tunable RFFE (RF Front End) applications. Key team members previously held design and management roles at Skyworks, Peregrine, RFMD (Qorvo), Broadcom, Anadigics.


The proliferation of worldwide 4G LTE Bands and the increased deployment of Carrier Aggregation (CA) is forcing Smartphone OEM’s and RFFE Module suppliers to adopt Tunable solutions as a way to break the rigidity of today’s Smartphone RF front-ends while reducing cost, size and optimizing performance.


Newlans has demonstrated the highest Q (Quality Factor) Programmable SOI Capacitor for Tunable RFFE solutions. SOI has the advantage over other technologies, like MEMS, in that it is easily integrated with other RFFE components, such as switches, LNA’s, PA’s etc providing the most cost effective solution available today.


Newlans Programmable SOI Capacitor is based on its patented Intellectual Property (IP), resulting in higher Q’s and less losses, than today’s traditional switched capacitor solutions.
