The smartphone market has enjoyed epic growth over the past decade in both software and hardware. As a result, mobile devices have become an indispensable part of our day-to-day life. The use of the mobile devices ranges from social and entertainment to essential tasks such as shopping, banking, booking travel, ordering food or hailing a cab. It is safe to say that mobile devices have become ubiquitous.
The deployment of 5G will greatly enhance the wireless data communication bandwidth, latency and the density of connected devices. It will also greatly enhance the features and performance of devices as well as enabling new services and businesses. 5G edge computing will emerge to support localized, low latency or even real time applications. Furthermore, 5G will also enable service providers to collect huge data for deep learning AI based new services. 5G and AI will together bring unprecedented services and conveniences into our life. Therefore, the underlying silicon technologies need continuous improvement to support the power, performance, density improvement and feature augmentation needs.
