RF industry: how can GaN win the battle?

: Over recent years, GaN has been significantly adopted by the RF industry owing to its higher power output at high frequencies, and its smaller footprint.

“The overall GaN RF market is expected to reach US$2 billion by 2024, driven by two main applications: telecom infrastructure and defense”, asserts Ezgi Dogmus, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst at Yole Développement (Yole).

And Antoine Bonnabel, Technology & Market Analyst, also part of the Power & Wireless team at Yole comments:“Worldwide investment in telecom infrastructure has remained stable in the past decade, with a recent increase coming from Chinese government efforts. But in this steady market, the trend toward higher frequencies offers a sweet spot for RF GaN in PA in 5G network at frequencies below 6GHz, in RRH.”…
