5G SOI Front END Module technology developments - SOITEC/frec|n|sys presentation

The deployment of advanced 4G and 5G sub-6GHz networks requires the introduction of new technologies by the phone makers.
As a consequence, the complexity of the RF Front end module is increasing dramatically and will have to integrate more than 100 filters to support all the modes of communication.  
Soitec POI substrates allow for the manufacturing of high performance, integrated surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter components in
response to the more stringent requirements demanded by the new 5G network features. Those filters are then integrated in smart phone front end modules along with the power amplifiers, switches, and antenna tuners devices that are already manufactured using RF-SOI substrates.
