Connectivity Q&A: Examining The Massive Growth In Home Automation

Explosive growth is expected in the home automation market as more individuals adopt smart home technology. Statista is predicting the market to be worth upward of $53.5 billion by 2022. This is an astronomical number for a largely consumer-driven market. These numbers are mostly influenced by video entertainment, followed by home security and monitoring services. In this article, Tony Testa from Qorvo provides some insight into this high-growth market, giving some details about what Qorvo is seeing in home automation.

Dual Band Circularly Polarized Dielectric Resonator Antenna For Satellite Communication

In this example, a circularly polarized dielectric resonator antenna intended for use as part of a compass navigation satellite system (CNSS) is simulated in XFdtd to generate return loss, gain patterns, broadside gain versus frequency, and axial ratio.
