Samsung develops 5G-capable Exynos Modem 5100 for smartphones


Last updated: August 15th, 2018 at 11:20 UTC+02:00

Samsung has developed products and services aimed at ushering in the age of 5G. The company today announced that it has developed the Exynos Modem 5100. Samsung says that it’s the industry’s first 5G modem that’s fully compliant with 3GPP standards.

The new single-chip modem has support for multi-mode communication and ensures high efficiency in data transmission. It’s fully compatible with 3rd Generation Partnership Project or 3GPP Release 15, the most recent standard specification for 5G New Radio or 5G-NR.

Exynos Modem 5100

Samsung has built the Exynos Modem 5100 on its power-efficient 10-nanometer process technology. It’s not just a 5G modem. The chip has support for legacy technologies as well including 2G GSM/CDMA, 3G WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, HSPA and 4G LTE.

The company mentions that it has successfully conducted an over-the-air 5G-BR data call test in a wireless environment using a 5G base station and a prototype 5G smartphone with the Exynos Modem 5100.

The test simulated real-world cellular network conditions and will help ensure faster development and commercialization of 5G smartphones with this new modem. Samsung says that it’s closely working with many global mobile carriers and partners to quickly bring commercial 5G networks to market.

The Exynos Modem 5100 is capable of providing a maximum downlink speed of up to 2-gigabits per second in 5G’s sub-6-gigahertz setting and 6Gbps in mmWave settings. It can also support stable and fast data communication in 4G networks with downlink speeds of 1.6Gbps.

Samsung is going to start supplying this modem to customers by the end of this year which means smartphones touting it will arrive next year. The company will probably be the first to bring a smartphone to market with the Exynos Modem 5100. It recently revealed that its first 5G smartphone won’t be the Galaxy S10. That title will go to a separate device that’s expected to arrive early next year.
