Promoting a Unified 5G Interface

Supports the interest of 5G OEMs by maintaining an open and interoperable ecosystem between chipsets and RF front end.


OpenRF creates a 5G ecosystem of functionally interoperable hardware and software across multi-Mode RF front end and chipset platforms to improve OEM time-to-market, enhance operational benefits and reduce overall costs, while allowing for architectural flexibility and customization to enable end product differentiation.

Value Proposition

Enables wireless device OEMs to benefit from maximum RF front end choices across chipset platforms providing lower costs, highest performance, reduced time-to-market and optimized inventory.


NI joins the Open RF Association to help accelerate 5G interoperability and adoption. NI will chair the OpenRF Compliance Working Group to help address the interoperability challenges facing the 5G ecosystem. Learn more here.
