GF’s industry-leading RF SOI technologies are utilized in high-growth, high-volume wireless and WiFi markets. They are optimized for low power, low noise and low latency/high-frequency applications that enable longer battery life for mobile applications and high cellular signal quality. Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology is widely chosen for cellular/WiFi RF front-end modules (FEMs) due to its low parasitic capacitance/diode and excellent isolation from the substrate. These RF SOI technologies are found in almost all cellular handsets from major manufacturers and in cellular ground station transceivers.
