Qualcomm has unveiled its new 5G NR millimeter wave (mmWave) and sub-6 GHz RF modules for smartphones and other mobile devices. The company has unveiled the QTM052 mmWave antenna module, along with the Qualcomm QPM56xx sub-6 GHz RF module, both of which pair with the company’s X50 5G modem for delivering connectivity across different spectrum bands. This development is important because even as mmWave signals deliver impressive faster speeds, they are unused because of shorter range of transmission and as they can be very easily blocked due to walls. To mitigate the issue, Qualcomm says that the QTM052 mmWave antenna modules support advanced beam forming, beam steering, and beam tracking technologies. These are said to “drastically” improve the range and reliability of mmWave signals.
