Net news, today, "Made in China" is no longer synonymous with the cottage, Chinese products can also be compared to foreign businessmen or even lead the way beyond. This means that domestic manufacturers still have a lot of opportunities and huge market space in the field of ICs with very low production rates in China. For example, in the 5G market that is about to usher in the outbreak, the massive demand for big data and the design innovation of wireless terminals will become the long-term driving force for RF front-end growth. Stimulated by a series of factors such as the rapid development of 5G and the ban on Huawei, the market's voice for Chinese products is also increasing. Vice President of Application Engineering, Kangxi Communication Market Internet of Things will generate greater RF front-end requirements Entering the era of 5G mobile communication, data transmission is almost the entire business needs of wireless communication networks. Therefore, high-speed, low-latency, low-cost, high-bandwidth multiplexed data transmission technology is on the stage as the core wireless transmission technology of 5G, which brings new challenges to the RF front-end market.
Especially with the rise of the Internet of Things, emerging markets such as smart cities, autonomous driving, and mobile medical care will further expand the RF front-end market. According to IDC's forecast, by 2025, there will be 41.6 billion IoT devices, generating 79.4 ZB of data. On the other hand, from 2018 to 2025, the amount of data generated by IoT devices will grow at a CAGR of 28.7%. For the Internet of Things, the main requirements of the RF front-end are low power consumption, low latency, high performance, low cost and customizable. This is also the main direction of RF front-end chip design and development. Faced with such strict technical requirements, Qiang Qiang, vice president of application engineering of Kangxi Communication Market, said that the 5G era network topology consisting of 5G macro base station + 5G micro base station + WIFI requires high-performance, high-reliability, low-cost RF front-end. The chip solution enables seamless network operation to support tens of billions of wireless devices.
Communications can provide a complete portfolio of WLAN/5GNR products." However, at present, more than 90% of the RF front-end market is still monopolized by Skyworks and Qorvo. As the first domestic 5G NR RF front-end chip sample produced by Conch Communications is officially tested and verified in China Mobile, it means that China will Strong RF front-end chip competitiveness has joined the international market, changing the pattern of American business. Zhao Xi, Chief Technology Officer of Kangxi Communications 5 years of focus, dark horse in the RF front-end market It is understood that in the five years of focusing on RF front-end integrated circuits, Kangxi Communication has been committed to the development and design of high-linearity RF front-end chips.
Although there are now a complete set of GaAs, SOI, CMOS and other RF chip design techniques, but this period naturally has problems and challenges. The data shows that in 2019, the annual shipment of Wi-Fi AP in China reached 100 million units, and the PON+Wi-Fi gateway reached 80 million units, with a compound annual growth rate of about 10%. In foreign markets, the annual shipment of Wi-Fi AP in China market is about 100 million units in 2019, and the PON+Wi-Fi gateway reaches 150 million units. The compound annual growth rate is 15-20%. It can be said that this is a huge growth space. market. For the challenges brought by products in this market, Zhao Xi, chief technology officer of Conch Communications, said: "The challenge of the contemporary high linearity RF front-end chip is the near-extreme linearity requirement for the RF front-end module FEM, zero tolerance DOMW Noise, and the impact of any minor factors on the DEVM in practical applications. And Kangxi Communications has successfully overcome the technical difficulties, and developed WIFI FEM products with performance comparable to the US." "Cangxi Communication currently has the world's leading GaAs/CMOS high-linearity RF chip design technology, which not only proves the strength of our team's research and development, but more importantly reflects the international competitiveness of Chinese-made RF chips in wireless applications." General Manager Peng Ping also said this at the new product launch on the 26th. Today, with its unique technology and highly advantageous products, Conch Communications can be said to be a well-deserved RF front-end market. Kangxi 2019 new product launch ceremony "China's creation" is not a day's work At the same time, in this torrent of technological innovation accompanied by the 5G countercurrent, Kangxi Communications also made a commitment to the industry. Kangxi Communications, which debuted at MWC, announced the release of a new 5G micro base station (sub 6GHz) RF power amplifier/front-end chip series and a new generation of WiFi6 fully integrated RF front-end chip – KCT8539S/KCT8239S. I have to say that Kangxi Communication is fortunate. It won the investment of Intel in the first two years. At the new product launch on the 26th, it reached a strategic cooperation agreement with China Mobile Internet of Things Co., Ltd., and its 5GNR micro base station RF power amplifier chip. -- KCT56228H is also one of the core products of the cooperation strategy between Kangxi Communication and China Mobile Internet of Things. At present, Kangxi Communication has a complete layout and planning of WLAN products and 5G products. Through continuous development and optimization, it provides customers with high-performance, small-package, high-efficiency, low-cost 5G RF chip solutions. In the future, with the development of smart homes, smart offices, smart utilities and use cases, Kangxi Communication will continue to improve the product layout of the Internet of Things market, and the winds of “Wanwang Internet” will be on the rise. At present, the international market of RF front-end chips has finally got the presence of Chinese companies, and Chinese manufacturers will have more room for growth in this field. From "Made in China" to "Created in China," China's success today is not a one-off success, and today's achievements are no accident.
