Qualcomm has always been a leader in the communications industry. The baseband released by Qualcomm is not only the first choice for most Android mobile phone manufacturers, even Apple’s latest iPhone 12 series also uses the baseband it provides. Last year, Qualcomm released the X60 and integrated it into the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 mobile platform released at the end of last year. It has excellent connectivity and performance in 5G and wifi. Last night, Qualcomm released a new generation of X65 communication baseband, which uses the most advanced 4nm process, while the network transmission performance can reach 10Gbps. It is the world’s first to support 10Gbps 5G rate and the first modem that conforms to 3GPP Release 16 specifications. The radio frequency system has once again refreshed people’s understanding of the network transmission rate.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 baseband supports enhancement, expansion and customization across 5G market segments; and through software updates, it supports the rapid deployment of new features and functions that will be launched, as well as 3GPP Release 16. Especially with the expansion of 5G to new vertical industries such as computing, industrial Internet of Things and fixed wireless access, this scalable architecture can support future-oriented solutions based on Snapdragon X65 to support the adoption of new features and extend the terminal life cycle , And help reduce the total cost of ownership.
As a new generation flagship baseband launched by Qualcomm, the performance of the Qualcomm X65 baseband is naturally very impressive. It adopts the latest 4nm process technology and can support a transmission speed of up to 10Gbps in rate, allowing wireless terminal products to be compatible with wired network experience. The bandwidth is comparable. At the same time, Qualcomm X65 baseband is also the industry’s first 5G baseband that supports 10Gbps.
In addition to transmission speed, the Qualcomm X65 baseband also supports more frequency bands and QTM545 millimeter wave antenna modules, including Sub-6G and millimeter wave frequency bands, and also supports the latest 41GHz frequency band. At the same time, the Qualcomm X65 baseband will also be equipped with QET7100 Qualcomm Broadband Envelope Tracker, which can greatly increase the transmission power and reduce the power consumption by about 30%.
Qualcomm also stated that on the Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 baseband, Qualcomm will introduce AI-assisted signal enhancement technology. This technology can allow AI to be added to the search of the network, increasing the network perception ability by 30%, thereby bringing lower Higher power consumption and wider network coverage.
Qualcomm introduced that with the development of 5G technology, 5G communication is not only used in the traditional mobile device market, including the industrial Internet of Things, computing fields can also enjoy the powerful network performance brought by 5G, so Qualcomm X65 baseband supports various market segments The enhancements include customization for the needs of different markets, and the baseband can support more new special effects through software updates.
Qualcomm said that products equipped with the X65 baseband will be officially launched in the second half of this year. According to Qualcomm’s habit, this refers to the next-generation flagship processor. And terminal products using this baseband can also be seen in 2022.
