Bluetooth technology has significantly impacted device connectivity, beginning with wireless speakers and headsetsand now more complex smart home implementations. A development kit (DK) for the Qorvo QPG6100 communications controller helps accelerate the design and development of lighting control systems based on Bluetooth mesh, as described in this post.
Optocoupler-based solutions and gate-drive transformers have been the mainstay for switch-mode power supply (SMPS) systems for many years, but fully integrated isolated gate driver products based on RF technology and mainstream CMOS provide more reliable, smaller, and power-efficient solutions.
50C-064-XX is a wideband directional coupler with SMA female connectors. This model operates 375-6000 MHz and is rated for 50 Watts of RF input power. This model has three ports: Input Port, Output Port, and Coupled Port. Due to its reactive directional design, it couples in one direction only.
The Model 750S1G6C is a solid-state, Class A design, self-contained, air-cooled, broadband power amplifier designed for applications where instantaneous bandwidth, high gain, and linearity are required.
The ADRF5424 is a reflective, single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch manufactured in a silicon process attached on a gallium arsenide (GaAs) carrier substrate. The substrate incorporates the bond pads for chip and wire assembly, and the bottom of the device is metalized, connected to ground.
Knowles Precision Devices (DLI) offers filter technology that addresses the challenge of implementing high-performance filters at mmWave frequencies. Their 26 GHz, 28 GHz, and 39 GHz filter solutions deliver 3 GHz of bandwidth, provide greater than 50 dB rejection, and are 20x smaller than current alternatives while implemented in surface mount packages for standard tune-free assembly. They are capable of stable operation within the -55°C to 125°C temperature range. Custom design services are available.
