Samsung News: South Korean Samsung introduced its new technologies for 5G. Thanks to Samsung’s new technologies, the spread of 5G will accelerate.
Samsung introduced new chipsets to be used in next-generation 5G solutions at the Samsung Networks: Redefined virtual event, which it organized the other day. The new 3GPP Rel.16 compatible chipsets consist of a third-generation mmWave Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit (RFIC) chip, a second-generation 5G modem System-on-Chip (SoC) and a Digital Front-End (DFE)-RFIC integrated chip. Samsung will accelerate the spread of 5G with 5G solutions. So, what does the South Korean company offer us with its new technologies?
Samsung’s new 5G technologies
3rd Generation mmWave RFIC: This technology will support both 28GHz and 39GHz spectrums. It will also come integrated with Samsung’s next-generation 5G chipsets. It contains advanced technology that reduces the antenna size by approximately 50% and maximizes the internal space of the 5G radio. It provides a more compact size, lightweight 5G radio by improving power consumption. By increasing the output power and coverage of the new RFIC chip, it doubles the output power of the next generation 5G compact macro.
2nd Generation 5G Modem SoC: It will enable Samsung’s upcoming baseband unit to have twice the capacity while halving the power consumption per cell compared to the previous generation. It will support both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectra. It will also offer beamforming and increased power efficiency for Samsung’s next-generation 5G Compact Macro and Large MIMO radio, while reducing size for both solutions.
DFE-RFIC Integrated Chip: This new solution combines RFIC and DFE functions for both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectra. Not only does it double the frequency bandwidth, it also reduces size and increases output power for Samsung’s next-generation solutions, including the 5G Compact Macro.
Samsung’s latest chips will power Samsung’s next-generation 5G products for 5G deployment, including massive MIMO radios and baseband units, and will be commercially available in 2022.
Samsung will broadcast 5G with a single antenna
Samsung has also introduced a new radio designed to help mobile operators overcome the challenges they face when deploying 5G networks. The new Single Antenna Radio features integrated antennas and provides operators the ability to simplify and accelerate 5G deployments by combining low-band and mid-band passive antennas and 3.5GHz Massive MIMO radio in a single form factor.
Samsung says its all-in-one radio will meet a variety of environmental and field demands, simplify installation, save space and reduce OPEX for operators. The new solutions will be available in early 2022.
Work has also started for 6G
Samsung also shared its vision of 6G technology and the world it will help create. The company said it pioneered 5G research and development even before 4G deployments, and is already preparing for 6G. Samsung recently introduced 6G Terahertz (THz), an end-to-end 140GHz wireless link that uses an all-digital beamforming solution in collaboration with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). The speeds to be achieved with 6G connection will turn your head.
