Mark, I have one for you on gross margin. Yeah. Or is there a mix issue with IDP? We are securing broad based design wins for our most highly integrated low, mid-high and ultra-high band solutions. So naturally, yes, we're sort of mixing that way because they're doing really well in the market currently. We have experienced no material disruptions in our business operations, thanks to these and other ongoing efforts. James, I'm going to take the first part.

So we've got a lot we can do to help them across our portfolio. While smartphone units are forecast to be down over 10% year-over-year, RF content expansion in 5G devices of approximately $5 to $7 is mitigating the impact of fewer units.

Yeah. On the walk from Q1 to Q2, it's partly the, we still have some period cost, Harsh, we still have Farmers Branch period costs and we have some idle equipment. Yeah. I guess the question is, if you look at their annual report, they have more than 110 days worth of inventory. Decawave and Cavendish, we've been clear that they're dilutive transactions. In addition, some of your peers have talked about seasonality, the timing differences because of a flagship -- different timing of flagship ramp this year. That's because two factors, really. I'll take that and then maybe Jim will provide a bit more color on the year. And then James, GaN doubling year-over-year, which is surprising, could you help clarify or remind us to you do not have a license to ship GaN directly to Huawei, is that correct? So I guess, the question is like what sort of shelf life does the stuff that you've shipped to them have? 1 November 2018. I appreciate it. Fiscal year, OK. Well, then that leads to another question, which is the elements of strength, which allow the gross margin to stay high in the March quarter despite seasonality. Thanks. We began the ramps in both 5G and WiFi 6 with a broad portfolio of products, including GaN. And hope everybody in the Qorvo family is safe, and congratulations on excellent guide in these very uncertain times. Do you see that in one quarter? Contents: Prepared Remarks. This call will include forward-looking statements that involve risk factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from management's current expectations.

To safeguard our employees and operations, in January, we began to take precautionary measures. I'm sure James would love to jump in as well and talk about infrastructure. We continue to advance the technology and work on product demonstration vehicles and so forth. Particularly your positioning within GaN, is that helping, is that market really starts to take off what you're seeing competitively? We'll go next to Bill Peterson with JP Morgan. Today's conference is being recorded. And then our channel remains very, very healthy. That's what's enabling this and as I said, we've got a lot of experience around the antenna sections of our customers' phones. Logo of jester cap with thought bubble. So the higher revenue helps us in the sense of those period costs or a smaller percent of higher revenue. On gross margin, our June quarter guide of approximately 47.5% is down sequentially due in part to lower volumes that was mentioned, up year over year. Thanks very much, John. Across our customers we are engaged on the most critical 5G challenges and enabling them to introduce innovative new designs, enhanced performance and bring products to market faster. And so, as I mentioned earlier in the call, I think we see about a $5 to $7 increase in content per handset, and that's relatively constant, whether you're adding it to a premium smartphone or a mid-tier smartphone. Yeah, Chris, it's Mark. Its quarterly revenue was up 31.4% compared to the same quarter last year. So I would say that certainly where we've centered our focus today and really because that's where we've seen the biggest part of the market. Read full article. Eric, congratulations on the antenna-plexers. It's been a tough year for everyone and there remains a lot of uncertainty. We expect mobile to decline sequentially in the June quarter due principally to COVID-19-related demand effects. [Operator Instructions] We'll hear first today from Gary Mobley with Wells Fargo. The programmable power management business, which were effectively on a year at this point, we're lapping that acquisition. ET. And so then we develop the capability of multiplexing those into very high order multiplexers is driven by our main path modules and then it's a short step from there into the antenna plexing business, essentially leveraging all of that work to get to multiplexing capability. Qorvo (QRVO) Q3 2020 Earnings Call Transcript QRVO earnings call for the period ending December 31, 2019. Of course, there's much tighter requirements on filtering. And so, we've spent a lot of time on productivity and ops and all the programs over the years and great efforts there. Welcome to the Qorvo, Inc. Fourth Quarter 2020 Conference Call. So we do have -- it's difficult to -- quarter-to-quarter it depends on the comparison quarter and as to how big an effect mix plays from quarter-to-quarter. Revenue was $788 million, driven by broad-based demand in 5G handsets and infrastructure, defense, WiFi 6 and IoT. More specifically, for mobile, we expect June quarter sales to decrease sequentially with parts of Asia partially offsetting weakness in the rest of the world. Of course, great partners. And then for my follow up, a question for Mark or Bob. I think, first of all, we're really pleased to hit a milestone, which has been following us for some time. We've also, as you know, have gone through a lot around rightsizing our footprint and making sure that incremental capex dollars are directed at the right place, so we're getting good return for those. Please go ahead. As the March quarter results and our June outlook could show, Qorvo is operating well through a challenging period while helping customers grow in 5G, WiFi, IoT and defense and other critical markets. We project capital expenditures to remain below $200 million in fiscal '21 and focus on BAW, GaN and other areas, which advance a differentiated position for Qorvo to best serve customer needs. I can tell you that. Motley Fool Transcribing, The Motley Fool. Sure. And from Needham & Company we'll move to Raji Gill. Yeah. Non-GAAP gross margin in the March quarter was 49.6%, with better-than-expected manufacturing costs and favorable mix effects. We think we can really help in terms of efficiency around the antenna and signal quality and so forth, it's really going to come down to the business case in the network environment. So it's usually on a very tight time schedule and working with some very unique expertise. In cellular infrastructure market, shipments of GaN high-power amplifiers and small signal components increased sequentially in support of sub-6 gigahertz 5G networks. Our WiFi business is rapidly mixing toward WiFi 6, and especially as you move and add the new 7.2 gigahertz capability and so forth, we do have a lot of unique capability to bring to that. Location, Location, Location: The Road to Ultra-Wideband . First of all, when you say Korea, a year ago, we're just turning the corner and realigning our portfolio with Samsung. And so, the fully integrated solution just offers an awful lot of value for time to market, given all the complexity. We've got, as you know, a lot of presence there all around the antenna structures and with 5G not only because of the higher bandwidths, but also new bands, some coming in on even higher frequencies and the implications of running in dual transmit mode where you're running on multiple bands at the same time, when you put all that together the antenna issues that our customers are struggling with just continue to get exponentially worse every year, especially with 5G. The base station business itself will also be very strong in Q2. You obviously kind of stayed away from giving guidance for fiscal '21. And then does that provide a runway for gross -- for continued gross margin improvement as you go into fiscal '22? Call Participants. So that number was 250 million, if I remember, kind of just curious --. But what the -- again the uptake of roughly 140 basis points, how much of that is mix and how much of that is just simply straight-up utilization? James? Free cash flow growth will continue to be a focus of this management team, and we will provide an updated free cash flow target in the context of a broader financial outlook once our full-year view is clear. Eric Creviston -- President, Mobile Products Group. But based on your capex commentary and the intention to be disciplined there, given that you did have multiple acquisitions in the year, I would think capex stays kind of around 5% of revenue, M&A, maybe less aggressive, and that would leave room for buybacks.
