Samsung Begins Mass Production Of Exynos 5100 5G Modem For Smartphones

The OEM's solution comprises the Exynos Modem 5100 introduced previous year, as well as the Exynos RF 5500 single-chip radio frequency transceiver and the Exynos SM 5800 supply modulator.

While the Exynos Modem 5100 is not a new product, it is finally hitting the pipelines, meaning it should be available for distribution to smartphone manufacturers pretty soon.

All three solutions offer support for sub-6GHz 5G-NR (5G New Radio) as well as legacy radio frequencies, meaning that the chipsets should work on dedicated 5G as well as older, existing networks including 2G GSM/CDMA, 3G WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, HSPA, 4G LTE, and 5G.

The Exynos RF 5500 has 14 receiver paths for download, 4×4 MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output), and a higher-order 256 QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) scheme for data transfer in 5G networks; and the Eyxnos SM5800 is 30% more power efficient than previous offerings. The Exynos SM5800 provides low-power supply with its support up to 100 MHz ET bandwidths.

In the Sweet 16 game against Tennessee, Purdue's Carsen Edwards got fouled while taking a 3-pointer with the clock running down. He had surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left knee earlier this week and is not expected to be in Minneapolis for the game.


The RF 5500 and SM 5800 were unveiled on Thursday.RF transceivers convert modem signals to optimize their frequencies so they can be swiftly sent and received. The Exynos SM 5800 is a supply modulator solution that supports 5G New Radio sub-6 gigahertz spectrum and legacy radio access technologies. Together, Samsung says its Exynos solutions help ensure data can be transmitted efficiently and reliably across 5G networks.

Both the Exynos RF 5500 and SM 5800's technological breakthroughs were presented and recognized by the International Solid-State Circuits Conference held in San Francisco in February.

As one of the only companies with an end-to-end 5G solution from chipsets, network core, radio solutions, and user devices, Samsung is uniquely positioned to deliver a next-generation smartphone and network.

Samsung inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies.
