With unprecedented scale, speed and complexity the upcoming 5G network will revolutionise the way large and small companies do business. It will create new opportunities for existing and emerging markets while making our homes, cities, cars and industries more intelligent, automated and interconnected. However, the challenges of such a disruptive change are great: ultra-high-bandwidth, latency as low as 1 ms and highly reliable connectivity. Additionally, RF architectures must be scalable, efficient, reliable and still extremely compact.
Based on half a century of system competency, Infineon Technologies AG now leverages the 4G experience and enables the 5G vision for cellular infrastructure and mobile devices by providing the leading RF technologies and key building blocks. Infineon provides the highly efficient and integrated architecture that 5G systems demand. As proprietary of the broadest portfolio available in the market serving the wide 5G frequencies spectrum, Infineon combines:
• High efficiency RF power technologies, namely GaN-on-SiC and GaN-on-Si for integrated architectures above 6 GHz and LDMOS for price competitive and high ruggedness sub 6 GHz systems. Packaging innovations enable wideband integrated Doherty amplifiers
• Flexible RF solutions for mobile and low power infrastructure including SiGe, BiCMOS, GaN mmW technologies and RF CMOS. They allow for optimal performance requirements granting alternative options, from cost optimised designs to high integration needs
• Scalable mmW solutions for frequencies as high as 100 GHz allowing customers a large degree of flexibility in design-phase and helping them to reduce time-to-market.
Infineon has shipped more than 20 million mmW transceivers in radar applications adopting beamforming technique and is an acknowledged innovation leader in automotive radar. The company is paving the way in phase-shift technology for highest spatial beam accuracy and enables massive MIMO and multiple arrays based systems. At the same time, Infineon continues to cover the network landscape for macro-cell base stations, small cells, backhaul and end-user devices.
High volume production with seamless supply, quality and reliability complement Infineon’s holistic offering to make the 5G vision happen.
Inspiring mobile business – powering the future the secure way!
At Mobile World Congress 2017 (hall 6, booth 6C41), Infineon will demonstrate semiconductor solutions for secured and energy efficient communication in the connected world. Highlights include intelligent street lamps for a smart traffic infrastructure, security gateways to protect connected devices in the smart home as well as new concepts for facilitating the interaction of humans and machines by using voice and gesture recognition.
