A Patent and Technology Perspective
We estimate the mobile Radio Frequency (RF) market to be worth approximately $19B. Mobile RF innovation aims to improve performance while also reducing cost, complexity, and power. Manufacturers today, however, are faced with increased complexity brought about by new standards (such as 5G), carrier aggregation, multi-mode phones, and consumer’s ever-increasing demands for bandwidth and reduced power consumption.
TechInsights analyses mobile RF devices from antenna to transceiver to baseband processor. Clients’ use cases of competitive technical intelligence and determining evidence of use are enabled by viewing this analysis within the world’s largest database of semiconductor reverse engineering; for mobile RF this includes process and package analysis, transistor characterization, architecture and circuit analysis. We see different approaches to addressing complexity issues; while some vendors are providing pin-compatible components that enable a common architecture to support different bands/regions simply by replacing components, other vendors are focused on more integrated architectures.
We have put together this presentation for lawyers, law firms, and intellectual property professionals to provide a look at:
- market and design wins,
- the mobile RF patent landscape,
- library of analysis that can be leveraged for patent investigations to find evidence of use or prior art in this space
