As of now, a wide band of frequencies are used by 3G network, which operates at various frequencies from 850 MHz to 2.1 GHz. Due to this technology, the internal architecture of all the consumer electronic devices needs to be changed. This has created a huge market for RF components and creates huge opportunities for tuners and antenna switches that are required to tune and transfer appropriate signal during the process of receiving.

The present scenario is such that 3G or UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) has changed the dynamics of telecommunication industry and staged a new platform for upcoming future. One more aspect that has created the opportunities time after time is the upgradation of technology. This can be witnessed from technological transition stage, i.e. from 1G, analog signal transmission technology to 2G, digital signal transmission process technology. This had also increased the transfer rate speed by 20 times i.e. from minimum 2.5 Kbps to 56 Kbps and maximum from 5.6 Kbps to 156 Kbps and the same difference has been seen in 2.5G and 3G technologies.

RF components’ market for consumer electronics was valued at $5,933 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $17,123 million by 2017 at an estimated CAGR of 19.4% from 2012 to 2017. The demand for RF components is due to the launch of new devices, which contains advanced features such as virtual communication, haptics reorganization from a distance and so on.

Radio frequency (RF) energy has been used in medical treatments for over 75 years, generally for minimally invasive surgeries, using radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation, including the treatment of sleep apnea. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses radio frequency waves to generate images of the human body.

Radio frequency refers to the radio signals that vary from 3 KHz (1 KHz = 10^3 Hertz) to 300 GHz (1 GHz = 10^9 Hertz). In the field of consumer electronics, the area of interest is radio frequency ranging between 10 MHz and 10 GHz. The major components used in RF front communications in consumer electronics devices are mainly Receivers /Transmitters, Filters, Power Amplifiers, Duplexers, Antenna Switches, and Demodulators.

RF Components in correct combinations are the basic components desired by any communication devices for their functioning. Today, with certain technological changes in environment, RF components’ demand is also increasing. The other factor that affects this market is its capability to fit in very small sizes in the mentioned applications. With increasing network of universal mobile telecommunications system (3G), the market has witnessed high demand for switches and tuners due to their supporting feature to provide precise functionality to the other main RF devices such as power amplifiers, demodulators, etc.
