Global RF Power Detector Market 2017-2021

Global RF Power Detector Market 2017-2021

About RF Power Detector

Radio frequency (RF) power detectors monitor the output of a RF circuit by generating a DC output voltage proportional to the power at that point. They are primarily used to measure and control power in wireless systems. Radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs) are the most vital components in the mobile communication space. They are the building blocks that enable long-range connectivity over networks like long-term evolution (LTE), 3G, 2G, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi for short-range connectivity in modern computing devices. ICs are used to carry out functions, such as amplification, frequency conversion, and signal filtering, which makes them a key component in wireless infrastructure.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global RF power detector market to decline at a CAGR of (6.40%) during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global RF Power Detector Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global RF power detector market: Analog Devices (Linear Technology), Maxim Integrated, and Texas Instruments.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Intersil, Skyworks Solutions, Advanced Microwave, Broadcom, BroadWave Technologies, Clear Microwave, Crystek, MACOM, ON Semiconductor, ROHM Semiconductor, and Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing popularity of RF SOI. SOI technology is the use of a layered silicon-insulator-silicon substrate instead of conventional silicon substrates in semiconductor manufacturing, which helps in improving the performance of microelectronic devices by reducing parasitic capacitance. These devices are different from conventional silicon-built devices where the silicon junction is above an electrical insulator, generally silicon dioxide or sapphire (these types of devices are called SOS).”

According to the report, one driver in the market is advent of carrier aggregation. The advent of carrier aggregation will significantly increase the amount of RF content in smartphones and tablets. This communication technology combines a range of available spectrums at the same time (usually two or more bands) to improve the upload and download speeds drastically. Although carrier aggregation is still not a popular concept in the telecommunication market, countries, such as China and South Korea, have already implemented the technology. Technavio believes that carrier aggregation will soon be rolled out by Western European countries, the US, and Malaysia.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is growing design complexities impacting signal strength. The smart devices market has been witnessing the trend of miniaturization over the last few years. This is resulted in increasing design complexities as these devices are getting slimmer, have larger displays, and reduced weight. Manufacturers are now focusing on how to enhance microcontroller design methods to reduce cost and signal issues. A tremendous amount of signal strength is lost between the antenna and the final signal received by the smartphone. The efficiency of RF transmission is calculated based on the power transmitted by the antenna divided by the power consumed by the amplifier to generate transmission.
