RF Micro Devices, Inc. has announced it has achieved a major performance milestone related to its PowerSmart power platforms. RFMD's PowerSmart power platforms are the company's new products category that reshape the future of multimode, multi-band cellular RF architectures. During an independent product testing, RFMD's PowerSmart power platforms achieved HSPA+ 4G data upload speeds while drawing approximately 15 percent less current than competitive solutions.

PowerSmart power platforms offer a revolutionary RF Configurable Power Core which delivers multiband, multi-mode coverage of all cellular communications modulation schemes, including GSM/GPRS, EDGE, EDGE Evolution, CDMA, 3G (TD-SCDMA or WCDMA) and 4G (HSPA+, LTE or WiMAX). HSPA+ 4G devices are capable of maximum data upload speeds of 22 Mbps. Since the RF Configurable Power Core in PowerSmart is compliant with current and known future 4G data standards (HSPA+, LTE QPSK, LTE 16QAM, and LTE 64QAM), RFMD anticipates subsequent smartphones featuring PowerSmart will support upload speeds significantly greater than 22 Mbps.

Additionally, these power platforms include all necessary switching and signal conditioning functionality in a compact reference design, giving smartphone manufacturers a single scalable source for the entire cellular front end.
