Posted by at 10:53 am on November 19, 2014

Qualcomm today announced a new LTE modem and accompanying envelope tracker for mobile devices that has the potential to deliver blistering download and upload speeds.

The Gobi 9×45 modem supports Category 10 LTE and global carrier aggregation for download speeds of up to 450Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100Mbps. Qualcomm says it is up to 1.5 times faster than Category 6 LTE. The modem uses 20nm technology and supports all major cellular standards (GSM, DC-HSPA, CDMA, EVDO) and radio frequency bands.

It also supports most major geolocation systems, including GPS, Glonass, and Galileo, as well as LTE Broadcast, VoLTE, and dual SIM LTE. The QEF3100 envelope tracker uses 30% less board area, creates less heat, and is more power efficient. Qualcomm says it will allow device makers to create even thinner designs that perform better.

The Gobi 9×45 and QEF3100 are currently sampling with customers and are anticipated to be commercially available in 2015.
