4G platform raises the bar in data upload speeds

RF Micro Devices Inc. has announced PowerSmart power platforms, a new series that achieved HSPA+ 4G data upload speeds during independent product testing. The company further noted that the platforms draw 15 percent less current than other solutions.

The PowerSmart power platforms feature 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 W-CDMA) and 4G (HSPA+, LTE or WiMAX). HSPA+ 4G devices are capable of maximum data upload speeds of 22Mbit/s. Because the RF Configurable Power Core in PowerSmart is compliant with all current and known future 4G data standards (HSPA+, LTE QPSK, LTE 16QAM and LTE 64QAM), RFMD anticipates subsequent smart phones featuring PowerSmart will support upload speeds significantly greater than 22Mbit/s.

The new platforms also include all necessary switching and signal conditioning functionality in a compact reference design, providing smart phone manufacturers a single scalable source for the entire cellular front end.
