Qorvo Introduces RF Matching Calculator


MatchCalc allows RF engineers to match system designs without using complex simulation programs

RF company Qorvo has announced a free, downloadable calculator that supports a wide range of RF matching tasks.

According to the company, MatchCalc 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 provides 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.

Brandi Frye, Qorvo's corporate vice president of marketing, said:"Our goal is to ease the RF design engineer's job and help them get products to market faster. Qorvo's Design Hub offers new tools, e-books, blog posts and educational videos. We're passionate about partnering with our customers to help them solve connectivity challenges, be it carrier aggregation, IoT or the path to 5G."

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.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
