Samsung's mmWave radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) and digital/analog front end (DAFE) ASICs supports 28GHz and 39GHz bands, which can reduce 5G base station size, weight, and power consumption by 25 percent.
Samsung has launched new RFICs and DAFE ASICs that go into 5G chipset, the company announced.
The chips will reduce a 5G base station's size, weight, and power consumption by 25 percent compared to previous iterations, the company said, increasing efficiency and the ability for rollout. They support 28Ghz and 39GHz spectrum bands.
Samsung has rolled out 36,000 5G base stations across the US and South Korea as of this month.
The company said the new RFICs use 28-nanometre CMOS semiconductor technology, and expand bandwidth maximums to 1.4GHz.
It will launch RFICs that support 24GHz and 47GHz bands later this year.
According to Samsung, the 5G DAFE ASIC can "manage large bandwidths of many that are hundreds of MHz" that can reduce the size and power consumption of this operation.
