5G RF SoC manufacturers | 5G RF SoC vendors

This page mentions 5G RF SoC manufacturers and 5G RF SoC vendors. It mentions links to 5G resources and 5G RF Transceiver manufacturers.

About 5G:
The fifth generation wireless technology is based on 3GPP standard release 15 and beyond. It supercedes 4G technologies viz. LTE, LTE advanced and LTE advanced pro. It is used for cellular and IoT based applications.

5G system operates on various frequency bands such as sub-1GHz, 1GHz to 6GHz and above 6 GHz.

The advancement of today's technology lead to development of hardware and software programmable RF SoC (System On Chip). Typically programmable SoC consists of ARM processor, FPGA, RF Sampling ADCs (Analog to Digital Converters), direct RF DACs (Digital to Analog Converters), DDC (Digital Down Conversion), DUC (Digital Up Conversion), JESD204 interface IP etc.
