Qorvo has introduced a breakthrough IoT transceiver, the Qorvo QPG7015M that enables simultaneous operation of all low-power, open-standard smart home technologies. In combination with Qorvo's patented antenna diversity and unique receiver design, the transceiver provides unmatched performance in range, interference robustness, and energy consumption to greatly simplify IoT design.
Qorvo already is an established leader in delivering multi-protocol capabilities in the form of System-on-Chip (SoC) controller products. The QPG7015M transceiver is targeted at gateway IoT solutions that require the full-range capability of Bluetooth Low Energy, Zigbee and Thread protocols with +20 dBm output power. The gateway acts as the centerpiece of IoT systems in the home, enabling multiple applications, security, and data through the central device where it resides. For example, IoT applications that support lighting, security, elder care, and home control are enabled through this gateway.
Qorvo's new transceiver is a big step forward in radio performance and its unique integration of multi-protocol support. This ensures that IoT designers don’t have to sacrifice device size and appearance to achieve protocol concurrency and high performance.
The QPG7015M transceiver features the unique Qorvo coexBoost™ capability. It provides best-in-class RF performance and enables 5x the range in high-duty-cycle Wi-Fi use cases, such as streaming to multiple 4K video clients. It also features a compact design that requires 2.5x less space and 4x fewer external components, speeding and simplifying the design of more attractive, future proof IoT equipment for the home. In addition, a flexible and scalable Software Development Kit (SDK) allows full control and leverages host processor resources, enabling faster time-to-market.
Qorvo solutions that simplify the IoT's toughest tech challenges will be on display at CES 2020 (#CES2020) in Las Vegas from Jan. 7-10, Sands Expo #43109. The QPG7015M is sampling now, with production quantities available in Q2 2020.
