Sina Technology News, Beijing time on April 4 evening news, according to the US technology website ZDNet reported that Samsung Electronics announced today that it has begun mass production of 5G chips.
This includes the Exynos Modem 5100, which includes a 5G multimode chipset. This is also the chipset used by the Galaxy S10 5G phone, which was just launched in South Korea on Wednesday.
As early as last August, Samsung released the Exynos Modem 5100, the world's first 5G Modem compatible with 3GPP's 5G New Radio (5G-NR) standard.
In addition to the Exynos Modem 5100, the new single-chip RF transceiver Exynos RF5500 and power modulation solution Exynos SM 5800 are also in volume production. These technologies are also used in the Galaxy S10 5G phone.
Among them, Exynos RF 5500 has 14 receivers for network download, 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM to maximize 5G network speed.
The Exynos SM 5800 is a low-power modulation chip that supports up to 100MHz envelope tracking ET bandwidth, reducing power consumption by up to 30%, optimizing ET bandwidth, enabling 5G networks to transmit data more efficiently and reliably. All three chips support 5G-NR, sub-6 GHz spectrum and traditional wireless access technologies.
Samsung has been actively seeking a dominant position in the 5G field. Even so, some of the Galaxy S10 5G phones sold abroad will use Qualcomm's X50 Modem chip. (Li Ming)
