The single QPD0005 and dual QPD0405 power transistors from Qorvo provide the power needed to drive cellular antennas.
The QPA9901 amplifier from Qorvo provides a typical gain of 36.5 dB covering 2110 MHz to 2200 MHz.
5G networks demand new antenna designs to deliver faster speeds for sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) communications. These new antenna technologies, however, often create a tech jargon that can potentially confuse readers. Let’s set the record straight in terms of who is who in the 5G antenna designs. It starts with the difference between…
High-performance RF bandpass filters may hold the key to autonomous vehicle communication without interference. Ali Bawangaonwala | Qorvo, Inc. Continuing advances in technology are making the autonomous vehicle a practical reality, and there is frequent discussion among technologists about Wi-Fi and 5G as enablers of the connected car. Equally important, but less talked about, are […]
by Cees Links, Qorvo Quite regularly I get the question: with all these standards around, what should I choose? Zigbee, Thread, Bluetooth Mesh, or Wi-Fi? Or maybe LoRa? Or is it better to wait for 5G and NB-IoT? Of course, these questions create confusion and slow down the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). […]
Part 1 of this FAQ looked at the basic available electronic filters – analog, switched capacitor, and digital – and briefly reviewed the attributes of each. As the frequencies to be filtered reach to 1 GHz and well beyond, while the selectively needed also became narrower, these filter approaches can no longer support many of […]
Filters are essential functions in most circuits and systems; as frequencies extend into the multi-GHz range, surface acoustic wave (SAW) and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters are needed to meet the design objectives. An engineer I worked with (and whose name I have forgotten) once remarked to about electronic filters (and he was serious): “like […]
Qorvo has expanded its offering for 5G applications with the industry’s first 28 GHz Gallium Nitride (GaN) front-end module (FEM). This new FEM reduces overall system costs for base station equipment manufacturers as they expand into 5G. According to SNS Telecom & IT, the 28 GHz frequency band is widely preferred for early 5G-based fixed […]
Sure, smart lights will save energy, but they’ll also be the backbone of systems that can help minimize mini-catastrophes. CEES LINKS, Qorvo THE IoT (internet of things) INCLUDES a rich offering of energy efficiency benefits. Smart lighting is, of course, one of the most common elements of any IoT energy efficiency discussion. Lighting is a […]
We recently got a tour of Qorvo‘s new RF front-end module from Qorvo’as Bror Peterson and Keysight’s Osamu Kusanois. The module is said to be the world’s first 39-GHz front-end that integrates a power amp, low-noise amp, and switch in one small package. The module uses gallium nitride technology to get a high power density. […]
