Samsung Foundry is revolutionizing wireless RF systems with solutions for 5G and mobile, communications infrastructure,
automotive, IoT and more.
Wireless Radio Frequency (RF) connectivity continues to experience enormous growth with a new spectrum becoming available in the mmWave bands which are being adopted for 5G/mobile, WLAN, satellite, automotive and IoT.
5G Systems include:
Ultra-Reliable Low Latency
massive Machine Type
WiFi 7 is the next generation of the ubiquitous WLAN standard. It will make use of the newly available >6GHZ spectrum and increased bandwidth.
Automotive encompasses a large number of RF devices: Bluetooth, WiFi, automotive spectrum (mmWave), telematics, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) for the development of autonomous vehicles.
Internet of Things (IoT) employs smart sensors that transmit data to the cloud for a variety of industries such as healthcare, security, home networking, industrial applications and much more.
Samsung Foundry optimizes RF implementation through a family of proven, high-performing digital RF-extended platforms.

To overcome the analog/RF scaling challenges from degenerative parasitics, Samsung has developed RFextremeFET (RFeFET™), a unique architecture that can significantly improve RF characteristics while using less power.
Designs implementing RFeFET™ require few transistors which result in a reduction in the area of analog/RF blocks. RFeFET™ supplements the digital PPA scaling provided by 8LPP while providing analog/RF scaling, thereby enabling high-performance highly-integrated 5G platforms and other high-frequency broadband/connectivity applications.
Samsung Foundry and its SAFE™ partners support a broad set of IP and RF services to
realize a fully connected future.
