Qorvo® Simplifies Wi-Fi 6E System Design with the First Single FEM to Support 5.1 to 7.1 GHz Bands

Accelerates design, enhances Wi-Fi 6/Wi-Fi 6E capabilities and delivers industry-leading throughput for enterprise gateways and access points

GREENSBORO, N.C., Jan. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Qorvo® (Nasdaq: QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today introduced the first wideband Wi-Fi front-end module (FEM) covering the 5.1 GHz to 7.1 GHz bands for customer premises equipment (CPE). Qorvo’s new wideband QPF4730 can provide full-frequency support for both Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E enterprise solutions.

In previous generations of Wi-Fi routers, each radio is fixed to a specific frequency, due to the narrowband nature of available solutions. To enable broadband operation, manufacturers must currently place a 5 GHz front-end module, a 6 GHz front-end module and switch components. The QPF4730 flexibly delivers full high-band support while reducing the board space required in Wi-Fi 6E upgrades. This improves overall system performance, capacity and flexibility.

Tony Testa, Qorvo director of Technical Marketing, said, “Qorvo’s newest FEM is optimized to operate over 5 GHz, 6 GHz or both, to maximize system capacity and throughput, which is not possible in existing CPE designs. Qorvo’s QPF4730 is the first in a family of new products that will address operational and architectural flexibility for Wi-Fi 6E channels and will include solutions for home gateways, routers and mesh systems.”

The QPF4730 enhances efficiency in Wi-Fi 6/Wi-Fi 6E architectures and is optimized for Power over Ethernet (PoE), improving Quality of Service (QoS), range and throughput. This solution maximizes user capacity and leverages the full available spectrum. It also enables manufacturers to design smaller form factors than current gateways to meet user expectations for more compact, sleek and efficient designs. With its expanded spectrum, Wi-Fi 6E provides higher throughput while servicing more client connections in home, campus and enterprise settings.

High Voltage Charging Solution for Energy Storage & Backup Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Today there is growing demand for energy storage with more power, longer range, and longer run time. But the question remains: how can we increase our energy storage given the energy storage mediums on the market today? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Huyhn from Analog Devices about the benefits of high voltage energy storage, why stacked battery cells are crucial to these kinds of systems, how high voltage energy storage systems can reduce conduction loss exponentially and what kind of high voltage charging solutions from Analog Devices are on the market today.
