高通發表全球通用 LTE 晶片組 射頻晶片市場山雨欲來

雖然 4G 長程演進(Long-Term Evolution;LTE)技術能大幅提升無線網路傳輸速度,但不同電信商、不同地區、不同國家的 4G LTE 網路使用不同頻段的情況卻也造成消費者、OEM 廠莫大困擾。像 2012 年蘋果(Apple)的第三代 iPad 不支援澳洲的 4G 網路技術,便引發當地消費者保護單位一度準備提告。不過在高通(Qualcomm)推出可支援全球各類 2G、3G、4G LTE 的解決方案後,這個問題便可望獲得相當程度的解決。 高通在 21 日透過新聞稿發表其全球通用的解決方案。根據高通說法,該晶片組將支援 7 種無線技術,包括 FDD-LTE、TD-LTE、WCDMA、EV-DO、CDMA 1x、TD-SCDMA、GSM/EDGE,支援的 4G LTE 頻段則多達 40 個左右。 高通表示,該晶片組使用了業界首個 3D 射頻封裝解決方案、動態天線匹配調諧器(Dynamic Antenna Matching Tuner)、功率追蹤器(Power Tracker),以及整合在一起的 CMOS 功率放大器、天線開關(Antenna Switch)。而在該晶片組使用的 3D … Continue reading
