The onset of 5G is materializing much faster than predicted. One of the key 5G enabling components, RF filters, is being asked to do more. This brochure covers the progress of Qorvo’s production of BAW filters and how they plan to grow their capabilities for 5G production.
Qorvo discusses the design layouts for a 3GHz, 25 Gbps DOCSIS with 1.8 GHz ESD as a steppingstone. Considerations on power consumption, coexistence with FDX, spectrum plans and interference from MoCA, LTE and Wi-Fi are discussed.
Gallium nitride (GaN) is still considered a relatively new semiconductor technology. Because of its superior properties, it is being used more and more in market areas previously dominated by legacy technologies. One area where GaN rises above the incumbent technologies is thermal management. In short, GaN “can take the heat” much better than other semiconductor technologies. This article and the video titled “Understanding GaN Thermal Analysis” provide practical tips about how to properly design using GaN with thermal considerations in mind.
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?
