Qorvo offers a series of four single-pole, double throw (SPDT) reflective GaN switches with operating frequency ranges between 0.5 and 18 GHz. These devices maintain low insertion loss and high isolation, making them ideal for low and high power switching applications.
Measuring RF power in a field environment can be a simple task which can be accomplished accurately and inexpensively. It can also involve a great deal of care and proper training to ensure equipment is accurately measured. Either way accurate field power measurements will ensure transmitting equipment is operating properly...
The masking effect of cable loss may cause your antenna to "appear" to perform more efficiently than is actually the case. In fact, it is possible to measure apparently acceptable VSWR or return loss levels even though your antenna may be completely out of operation. The purpose of this article is to provide an understanding of cable loss masking effect and explain how to avoid these pitfalls...
As broadcast network systems are planned and integrated, coverage predictions, as well as the prediction of the possibility of co-channel interference are based upon several factors, including geographical terrain, antenna gain and directionality, and transmitter output power. The introduction of new digital modulation formats into broadcast settings has necessitated a re-thinking of the methods that are used for the measurement of transmitter power
This white paper describes the design of a single stage 5W X-band GaN power amplifier by using a low-cost SMT packaged transistor.
Consumers expect a high standard of network connectivity. Even though our global data consumption has risen from petabytes per month to exabytes per month, users do not want to experience any issues. While Wi-Fi is used to offload the cellular network, high-demand applications continue to cause strain, and smartphone manufacturers continue to pressure carriers to make network enhancements to offload data traffic.
