Samsung and Marvell System-on-a-Chip advances 5G networks
Samsung Electronic and American technology company, Marvell, have announced a jointly-developed System-on-a-Chip (SoC), which aims to enhance the performance of 5G networks.
The chip, designed to help apply new technologies, is equipped with simultaneous 4G and 5G network support and saves up to 70 per cent in chipset power consumption.
Junhee Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D at Samsung Electronics is looking forward to working with Marvell.
“We are excited to extend our collaboration with Marvell to unveil a new SoC that will combine both companies’ strengths in innovation to advance 5G network solutions.
“Samsung prioritizes the development of high-impact 5G solutions that offer a competitive edge to our operators. We look forward to introducing this latest solution to the market shortly,” he said.
The two companies have also collaborated in the past, announcing the development of new 5G products, including innovative radio architectures, last year.
Executive Vice President of Marvell’s Processors Business Group, Raj Singh, also expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership.
He said: “We are again honored to work with Samsung for the next generation Massive MIMO radios which significantly raise the bar in terms of capacity, performance and power efficiency.”
“Our collaboration with Samsung spans multiple generations of radio network products and demonstrates Samsung’s strong technology leadership.”
Daniel Newman, Founding Partner at Futurum Research, added: Marvell and Samsung are leading the way in helping mobile operators deploy 5G with greater speed and efficiency,
“This latest collaboration advances what’s possible through SoC technology, giving operators and enterprises a distinct 5G advantage through optimized performance and power savings in network deployments,” he said.
