Samsung said the new second generation modem SoC will be embedded in its upcoming baseband unit. The DFE-RFIC integrated chip will double frequency bandwidth and also reduce the size and increase output power for the company’s next generation solutions.
Unveiling the in-house chipsets, the company aims to reduce the size and foster high performing, efficient 5G solutions. “This newly unveiled chipset is the fundamental component of our state-of-art 5G solutions, developed through a long-standing R&D effort that enables Samsung to be at the forefront of delivering cutting-edge 5G technologies,” said Junehee Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.
