This helps improve the performance of microelectronics by reducing parasitic device capacitance.
Major key players in the global radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) market: Infineon Technologies, Qualcomm, Broadcom (Avago Technologies), Qorvo, Skyworks Solutions, NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, and Renesas Electronics.
SOI-based 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 silicon on sapphire (SOS).
The choice of insulator largely depends on an intended application where sapphire is used for high-performance RF and radiation-sensitive applications and silicon dioxide is used to create diminished short channel effects in microelectronics devices. The insulating layer and topmost silicon layer vary widely with application.”
According to the radio frequency integrated circuit market report, one of the major drivers for this market is Deployment of next-generation LTE wireless networks. The burst in data consumption has resulted in the adoption of next-generation LTE networks such as 3G and 4G.
The growing data consumption has resulted in the growth of commercial networks, making LTE the fastest developing mobile technology. Specific bands have been designated for LTE, but they vary from carrier to carrier.

Further, the radio frequency integrated circuit market report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Signal loss due to growing design complexities. The increase in design complexities such as slimmer version, use of metallic case, and larger displays in smartphones resulted in the degradation of radio performance.
The efficiency of RF transmission is calculated by the power transmitted by the antenna divided by the power consumed by the power amplifier to generate transmission. A huge amount of signal strength is lost between the antenna and other receivers in the smartphone.
As a result, the power amplifier needs to deliver more power to transmit the signal from the antenna, which reduces the radio efficiency up to 75%.
