Achieves lowest insertion loss and smallest size in the industry by using new generation TaRF5 process

TOKYO - Tuesday, October 8th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced that it has developed an SP10T[1] RF antenna switch with a MIPI® RFFE[2] interface that achieves the lowest insertion loss[3] and smallest size in the industry[4] for the smartphone market. Sample shipment starts from today.

The new product uses "TaRF5”, a new generation TarfSOI™ (Toshiba advanced RF SOI)[5] process using silicon on insulator (SOI) technology[6]. By using the TaRF5 process, the new samples achieve a 25% improvement in insertion loss (f=2.7GHz) and a 40% size reduction against products using the TaRF3 process. These improvements can lead to longer battery operating time and smaller mounting space, which can also contribute to smaller sizes for products in which they are used.
