Qorvo offers a large range of GaN on SiC power transistors as premiere solutions for GaN needs. These discrete power amplifiers are available in models that cover frequency ranges from DC-18 GHz. With a range of linear gain between 16.6 – 21 dB, and a saturated output power range between 37 and 54.2 dBm, these devices are ideal for a wide variety of broadband wireless, space, and military applications.
Scientists at Disney Research have demonstrated a new method of charging devices wirelessly across a room bathed in magnetic fields emanating from metalized walls, floor, and ceiling. This new technique makes it possible for any living room, office, or warehouse to deliver safe and ubiquitous wireless power to devices contained anywhere within.
Japanese scientists have built a terahertz (THz) transmitter capable of transferring data at speeds of 105 gigabits per second using the frequency range between 290 GHz and 315 GHz. That's ten times faster than fifth-generation mobile networks (5G) offer.
Today’s smartphone market has expanded into several categories with differing design goals and priorities, which require different approaches to RF front end (RFFE) integration. Modern packaging techniques make it possible to combine multiple RFFE components into integrated modules which help smartphone manufacturers accelerate the design and manufacture of new handsets. However, since there are two key smartphone categories – flagship phones and mid-tier and entry-level handsets – it raises the question of what would be the right level of RFFE integration and the best integration approach for each one?
How do operators avoid interference between bands while minimizing insertion loss? Multiplexers. They are designed to integrate the required filters for multiple aggregate bands, provide isolation within and between the bands, and allow them to simultaneously connect to the antenna.
Researchers at Massachusetts-based Tufts University School of Engineering have built a chip-sized, low-power, high-speed modulator operating at above 14 gigahertz, with the potential to work at above 1 terahertz (THz) on the electromagnetic spectrum.
