On-Demand Mobile RF Webinar

Who will dominate in RF?
Smartphone RF Front Ends at a crossroad: Qualcomm, OpenRF, Skyworks, etc.

5G has dramatically increased the complexity of the cellular radios in mobile phones. This has posed new challenges to OEMs working to supply to multiple wireless operators, and challenges to component suppliers tasked with higher radio performance while keeping component counts and costs down. Having deep visibility into current market trends, and comparing market-leading approaches enable more informed and strategic decisions for optimal mobile radio design to increase competitive differentiation.

In this 30 minute webinar, which was followed by a live Q&A session, TechInsights / Strategy Analytics’ Christopher Taylor, Lead Analyst and Radu Trandafir, Lead Technology Analyst, examined key decisions faced by OEMs when choosing components to help you understand how market-leading approaches stack up:

  • Qualcomm’s complete solution
  • OpenRF + MediaTek, Samsung, or Unisoc chipset
  • Skyworks + chipset of choice
  • Mix and match of chipsets
