Samsung begins mass production of its 5G chipsets


Last updated: April 4th, 2019 at 12:51 UTC+02:00

Samsung has begun the mass production of its 5G multi-mode chipsets for next-generation 5G smartphones. The company’s latest 5G communication solutions include a 5G modem, a single-chip radio frequency (RF) transceiver, and supply modulator solutions. RF transceivers are the components that allow smartphones to transmit and receive data over the cellular network. Samsung is already using these solutions in the Galaxy S10 5G.

Reliable and power-efficient performance is the key

Samsung’s Exynos Modem 5100 is its first 5G modem solution. The modem supports all networks from 5G’s sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrums to 2G GSM/CDMA networks in a single chip. And with the possibilities for richer content with higher data rates opening up with the arrival of 5G, Samsung has paired the modem with RF (Exynos RF 5500) and supply modulator solutions (Exynos SM 5800) for power-efficient performance.

The Exynos RF 5500 has 14 receiver paths for download, so as to maximize the data transfer rate. The Exynos SM 5800, meanwhile, is a low-power supply modulator solution which reduces power consumption by 30%. With an advanced power optimizing ET solution for RF, data can be transmitted more efficiently and reliably over the incredibly fast 5G network, the company said. The transceiver and modulator both support legacy and sub-6GHz networks.

The Galaxy S10 5G goes on sale in South Korea tomorrow (April 5). It will arrive in the US on May 16, but possibly with Qualcomm’s X50 chip instead of the Exynos Modem 5100.
