For more than 30 years, Qorvo has been all around you. We've been innovating, researching, developing and acquiring cutting-edge technologies that shape the world as you know it.
Regardless of the route to becoming Qorvo, the mission has always remained the same: to drive connectivity, no matter the technology. From the start of RF Micro Devices (RFMD) in 1991, TriQuint in 1985, and dating back to roots in Tektronix, Texas Instruments, Raytheon and Watkins-Johnson, we've helped send rockets to Mars, connected you with your family and friends through cell phones, and brought satellite radio to your car.
Custom MMIC has recently investigated the use of gallium nitride (GaN) to break through this linearity stalemate. Using GaN MMIC processes, Custom MMIC has achieved mixer IP3 levels of +40 dBm, with a very high linear efficiency of 10 to 15 dB.Download
In this Tech Brief, you’ll learn how to reduce your signal chain's bill of materials, simplify your bias circuitry, and reduce the number of extraneous noise sources with Low Noise Amplifier MMICs (LNAs) that utilize a positive bias.Download
This Tech Brief from Custom MMIC provides insights into the contributions to Phase Noise from common signal chain components, and discusses semiconductor typology issues related to key phase noise factors.Download
This Tech Brief from Custom MMIC talks about the use of enhancement mode pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility-transistors (E-pHEMTs) in monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs.)Download
