Qualcomm, news for 5G: from Snapdragon X65 to FWA
Qualcomm continues to invest in the development of advanced solutions for 5G as evidenced by the new announcements regarding smartphones, mobile broadband, FWA (fixed wireless access) and RFEE (RF Front-end). Here are the most important ones.

The news announced by Qualcomm for 5G, starting from X65

Let's start with the fourth generation Snapdragon X65, the first solution for 5G connectivity to 10 Gigabit and modem-antenna of release 16 of 3GPP, now in sampling. It will make its commercial debut in devices arriving on the market by 2021. On paper, the guaranteed performance is comparable to that of a fiber line. Also presented was the Snapdragon X62 5G, an RF-modem system and a modem-antenna solution optimized for the mainstream adoption of mobile broadband applications. These are the words of Durga Malladi, Qualcomm Technologies Senior Vice President and General Manager for 4G / 5G.

The Snapdragon X65 incorporates all the key 5G innovations expected from the world leader in wireless innovation " Our fourth generation 5G RF-modem system is designed for the global rollout of 5G and brings with it major modem-to-antenna innovations, as well as extensive spectrum aggregation capability from sub-6 GHz to mmWave. This feature will fuel the rapid expansion of 5G by improving coverage, energy efficiency and performance for users. Thanks to their extended range and high-power capabilities, the Snapdragon X65 and X62 are also at the heart of 5G expansion in the area of ​​fixed wireless access and cloud computing opportunities.

Then there is the second generation Fixed Wireless Access 5G platform with 10 Gigabit connectivity, intended for both individuals and companies. With the QTM547 module it offers 5G mmWave extended-range, 5G extanded-range below 6 GHz, and first sub-6 GHz support with eight receiving antennas to accelerate the delivery of 5G to consumers as a plug-and-play alternative to DSL, cable or fiber. This is how Gautam Sheoran, Senior Director for the Product Management division of Qualcomm Technologies described it, referring to the possible areas of use.

This announcement is a further demonstration of our efforts to address the "connectivity divide" , providing operators with a cost-effective way to deliver fiber-like Internet speeds over 5G wirelessly to rural, suburban and densely populated urban areas. Qualcomm's 2nd Generation Fixed Wireless Access 5G platform is a complete, affordable and scalable solution for operators and OEMs to implement 5G multi-gigabit speeds and low-latency connectivity for proven, small businesses, schools, hospitals and city halls.

Finally, the announcement of the new generation of RFEE (RF Front End) solutions for high performance 5G mobile devices should be noted. There are week generation Wideband Envelope Tracker (QET7100) for multi-mode, multi-output, broadband envelope tracking with power amplifier supporting global 5G sub-6 GHz and LTE bands, AI-Enhanced Signal AI-enhanced 5G antenna adaptive tuning boost designed to improve performance and new 5G / 4G Power Amplifier (PA) and Diversity Modules integrated modules.
