The QTM052 millimeter wave antenna module can be paired with the Qualcomm Opteron X50 5G modem to overcome the challenges of millimeter waves. Designed to support extremely compact package sizes, a smartphone can integrate up to four modules; advanced beamforming, beam steering and beam tracking technologies are also available to significantly improve the coverage and reliability of millimeter-wave signals.
In addition, the system includes an integrated 5G new air interface radio transceiver, power management IC, RF front-end components and phased antenna array, and is available at 26.5-29.5 GHz (n257) and full 27.5-28.35 GHz. Supports up to 800MHz bandwidth on the (n261) and 37-40GHz (n260) millimeter wave bands.
"This milestone innovation has further strengthened Qualcomm's leading position on the 5G commercial road in early 2019." Qualcomm President Christiano Amon said proudly.
