Mechanical cracking resistance can be increased by two methods; by reducing the mechanical stress being exerted on the capacitors by PCB design/assembly processes, and by increasing the mechanical strength of the component.
Since Wi-Fi was first released, its standards have continually evolved — typically resulting in faster speeds and network/spectrum efficiency. This paper discusses the basics of Wi-Fi standards and the evolution of Wi-Fi technologies.
There are any number of strategies that consumers can try to fix interference problems with Wi-Fi in their homes, but as an RF engineer, how can you design a Wi-Fi access point that addresses the biggest interference issues from the outset?
S-parameter matching is used to maximize gain and gain flatness in simple linear RF/microwave amplifier designs. This same S-parameter data is used to develop matching networks that address amplifier stability. This paper discusses the importance of using modeling for basic S-parameter and stability analyses in the gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier (PA) design process. It also focuses attention on a simple two-port stability analysis derived from linear S-parameter calculations. The nonlinear Qorvo GaN power transistor model from the Modelithics Qorvo GaN Library, in combination with simulation templates and Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS) software.
Wi-Fi Tech & Trends is Qorvo's new blog series that features questions and answers from Tony Testa, Director of Wireless Connectivity Solutions. In this article, Tony will provide insight on the latest Wi-Fi design tips, trends and innovative solutions.
A common question regularly asked to Knowles Precision Devices is “why not just integrate a filter in the board stack?” In short, there are manufacturing tolerances to consider, and size must also be considered. This white paper examines different 26 GHz filter manufacturing approaches with the specific design goals to better understand the importance of tolerance and size analysis.
