When it comes to technologies that connect, power and protect the things “all around you,” Qorvo has it covered. And based on what our blog visitors have been reading in 2021, they appear to agree! Our top 5 blogs for 2021 focus on Ultra-Wideband (UWB), 5G and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology that help us connect, brushless DC motor control that puts power in the palm of our hands, and GaN power amplifiers for defense radar that helps protect us. Here’s a quick look at our top five blogs from last year, starting with one of Qorvo’s newest technologies, UWB.
#1 Location, Location, Location: The Road to Ultra-Wideband
To fully understand the value and impact that Ultra-wideband (UWB) technology delivers, we need to look at the big picture. Here we chart the evolution of location technologies, how UWB is shaping the landscape and forging a new path to the future. Learn about the potential for this exciting new technology. Read more >
#2 You’ve Got the Power: 6 Essentials for Brushless DC Motor Control
What does motor control have to do with delivering on the promises of the next-generation electronic devices? Answer: A whole lot. This blog post provides highlights of our Motor Control Fundamentals for Dummies book. This book, available for download, explains how advanced motor control is re-shaping the world around us to help reduce power consumption, increase product efficiency and reliability. You will learn about motor drive motion and control, the importance of the brushless DC motor and its influence on new and future motor design. Read more >
#3 Revolutionizing Radar Design with Electronically Reconfigurable GaN Power Amplifiers
For radar systems to increase in performance and capabilities, they need to use multiple frequency bands to operate in a variety of environments and conditions. Learn how a reconfigurable power amplifier design is enabling these modern radar system advancements. Read more >
#4 Why GaN is 5G's Super ‘Power’
The excitement around 5G is shared on a global scale. And for good reason: 5G promises lightning speeds up to 20 times faster than 4G LTE, and opens up an array of innovative applications and opportunities beyond our imagination. But it also requires overhauling the current network infrastructure. A key component that powers the new infrastructure is found in GaN technology. Here we discuss why GaN is so important to this effort, the best practices for embedded designers using GaN, and how it will enable future innovations. Read more >
#5 Steering Clear: Vehicle-to-Everything Designs with Seamless Communication and No Interference
Did you know that vehicles today have more electronics and radios in them than the first space capsule sent to the moon? To reap the benefits of all the technology, each of these communication radios must work seamlessly without interference. Here’s what you need to know to avoid “traffic jams” in your V2X designs.
