OnePlus, a global mobile technology company, has selected NXP’s new QFN RF Front End Solution for Wi-Fi 6 for its latest premium tier high-end flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 9 featuring Wi-Fi 6.

What’s new: NXP’s highly integrated QFN Front End Solution for Wi-Fi 6/6E. The QFN solution supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 wireless network standard and supports new 6GHz spectrum.

Why it matters: The new OnePlus 9 Series handset is the industry’s first smartphone featuring a Wi-Fi-6 QFN solution, which allows for the smallest possible footprint inside the smartphone. With its higher data rate and increased capacity, Wi-Fi 6 will power new consumer experiences on smartphones and drive the creation of new and compelling applications across a broad range of markets and services.

NXP delivered a small, proven QFN solution that made it possible to accelerate the time-to-market window supporting the new Wi-Fi 6 technology with our flagship OnePlus 9 series smartphone,” said Apollo Gu, RF Director of OnePlus.

With today’s exciting milestone, we believe that consumers can start to benefit quickly using the exciting new Wi-Fi 6 technology,” added Doeco Terpstra, VP & General Manager, Smart Antenna Solutions, NXP.

Details on NXP’s QFN Front End Module for Wi-Fi 6/6E: The new NXP WLAN7205C single channel QFN solution offers a small package with a monolithic integrated power amplifier, switch and low noise amplifier to improve the range capability of the handset’s Wi-Fi communications. The QFN package can be placed close to the antenna, reducing trace losses--unlike dual channel, modular solutions available in the market. This improves transmission and reception, increases battery life for longer Wi-Fi usage and enables faster data transmission for a greater user experience. The WLAN7205C solution offers a level of integration that includes the power amplifier, switch and low noise amplifier in a monolithic die which makes the smallest QFN package possible.
