At today's Qualcomm 4G / 5G Summit, Qualcomm announced the launch of a 5G modem chipset for mobile terminals, and successfully implemented a 5G data connection, which means accelerating the provision of support for 5G new mobile terminals for consumers.
Last year, Qualcomm became the first company to release the 5G modem chipset. Less than a year, high-pass will achieve the product from the release to the functional chip capacity.
It is understood that the 5G data connection demonstration in San Diego's Qualcomm Technologies laboratory. The Qualcomm Xiao Long X50 5G Modem Chipset achieves gigabit rates and data connections over the 28GHz millimeter-wave band.
In addition to the Xiao Long X50 5G modem chipset, the demonstration also uses the SDR051 millimeter-wave RF transceiver integrated circuit (IC). The demo uses Keysight Technologies' new 5G protocol development kit and the UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform (UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform).
In addition, Qualcomm also previewed its first 5G smartphone reference design, and mobile phone power and size requirements, the 5G technology for testing and optimization.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. executive vice president and QCT president Kristiano & middot; Amen said: We can not consider the global 5G commercial timetable, 5G terminal products will soon be launched in 2018, 2019 full commercial, I took a 5G smart phone sample. & rdquo;
There is no doubt that no one wants to take advantage of the next generation of ultra-high capacity and low latency 5G network, but before the 5G commercial, the technology needs to do further standardization work, Qualcomm is good at their own chip technology to build Own 5G ecological camp.
At the meeting, Qualcomm partners Ericsson, Sony, Verizon, etc. from the network, terminal, wireless access and other aspects of the high-profile cooperation, including the use of high-pass chip windows 10 Microsoft.
Of course, it must be pointed out that the 5G the most direct promotion may not be a mobile phone, but all things high-speed Internet, 4K real-time transmission, but the phone will play the role of the central commander.
