Samsung’s new 8nm RF expected to provide one chip solution for 5G communications


Samsung’s newest radio frequency (RF) technology based on the 8 nm process technology is expected to provide a “one chip solution”, specifically for 5G communications. The new 8nm RF joins an already broad portfolio of RF-related solutions including 28nm- and 14nm-based RF.

With this new technology, Samsung is expecting to expand its leadership in the 5G semiconductor market from sub-6GHz to mmWave applications.

“Through excellence in innovation and process manufacturing, we’ve reinforced our next-generation wireless communication offerings. As 5G mmWave expands, Samsung’s 8nm RF will be a great solution for customers looking for long battery life and excellent signal quality on compact mobile devices,” said Hyung Jin Lee, Master of Foundry Technology Development Team at Samsung Electronics.

According to Samsung, while digital circuits have improved significantly in performance, power consumption, and area (PPA), the analog/RF blocks haven’t…
