The largest market in terms of volumes and with highest number of applications on a single platform today is that of mobile phones. With more than 1.5 Billion phones being shipped in a year worldwide. The major wireless applications in a mobile phone include primarily cellular communication and an increasing number of connectivity sub-applications like BT, WLAN, GPS, FM, mobile TV, NFC, etc. With more and more applications being integrated on a single platform, the trend of RF components is towards:
- smaller ICs
- higher levels of integration
- increased number of bands and modes
- integration of multiple and new connectivity functions connected to a single antenna
