New RF matching calculator expands company’s suite of online tools

    GREENSBORO, NC – August 14, 2017 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today announced a free, downloadable calculator that supports a wide range of RF matching tasks. Qorvo MatchCalc™ is a unique tool that allows RF engineers to quickly match their system designs without being connected to complex simulation programs, speeding the design process and reducing the time to get new products to market.

    MatchCalc expands Qorvo’s extensive library of tools that help design engineers in mobile, infrastructure and defense markets work faster and more efficiently. University students also use the tools for their design projects. The library includes another one-of-a-kind calculator, the Maximum Power Reduction tool, for designing carrier aggregation mobile devices. These tools and all of Qorvo’s design resources, such as videos, blogs, white papers, e-books, block diagrams and brochures, are available at the Qorvo Design Hub.

    MatchCalc is an intuitive set of basic RF design tools providing ideal component values for matching S1P or S2P files to the desired system or reference impedance. Smith Chart, Log Mag and K-Plot matching functionality are provided with real-time tuning. MatchCalc frees RF designers to work remotely and offers capabilities not available in other downloadable tools. The MatchCalc download, along with two Qorvo instructional videos that provide an overview of the tool’s functionality, can be accessed on the MatchCalc download page.
