Qorvo Releases a Downloadable RF Matching Calculator Tool

Qorvo has released a free, downloadable calculator that supports a wide range of RF matching tasks. Known as Qorvo MatchCalc, it 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 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. It 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 online MatchCalc page.

MatchCalc Features

  • Displays insertion loss/gain of S2P & S1P files
  • Snap-shot feature to hold static plots
  • Real-time optimization/tuning
  • Return loss and Impedance plots for input and/or output ports
  • Smith chart 2X scaling
  • Ability to create a match report in Word
  • Plot markers
  • Using a thru line, displays input source impedance & output load

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.
