GCT Semiconductor Announces the World’s First Highly Integrated Multi-Mode LTE Chipset Supporting the 450 MHz Spectrum

GCT Semiconductor Holding Inc. (“GCT” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GCTS), a leading designer and supplier of advanced 5G and 4G semiconductor solutions, announces the world’s first highly integrated multi-mode LTE chipset capable of operating in Cat 4, Cat 1bis, Cat-M1, Cat NB1/NB2 and non-terrestrial networks (NTN). Leveraging over two decades of leadership in 450 MHz solutions, this new SoC is optimized for device deployments in private, mission-critical infrastructure, and public utility networks around the globe, enabling true global coverage over land, sea, and air.

As 450 MHz deployments are expected to grow to the tens of millions, GCT is using its deep expertise in both the 450 MHz space and the industrial sector to enable 450 MHz Alliance members to address new markets and requirements. “450 MHz device deployments are already in millions of devices worldwide and serve critical communications needs in safety and emergency services, as well as remote healthcare facilities, schools, and more,” said John Schlaefer, CEO of GCT. “With this new chipset, GCT is fully ready to support the continued growth of 450 MHz, 410 MHz, and 380 MHz networks worldwide.”

“We’re excited to have GCT continue its support of the 450 MHz Alliance members and ecosystem,” said Gösta Kallner, Executive Chairman of 450 MHz Alliance. “Bringing a new LTE chipset to market during a time when 5G has taken the spotlight shows true leadership and understanding of the 450 MHz market as it enters a period of strong growth.”

With dual RX and low-band dual TX, GDM7243SL utilizes UL diversity and higher power to maintain connectivity even in challenging conditions, such as underground or remote deep forests that do not have access to traditional terrestrial networks. GCT’s new dual-core solution offers integrated RAM and optional Flash, allowing customers to create fully integrated devices without requiring an external processor. GDM7243SL’s monolithic baseband and radio features tuning from 380 MHz to 3,800 MHz, with multiple ports available to reduce external RF components.

GDM7243SL is expected to sample to customers in the fourth quarter of this year. Contact for more information.
