Qorvo announces second edition of GaN For Dummies

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC and Hillsboro, OR, USA, a provider of RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, has announced a second edition of its 'GaN For Dummies' books, including updates to the original books (published in 2014). Written in conjunction with publisher John Wiley and Sons Inc, the books consist of two volumes: 

Volume 1, GaN RF Technology For Dummies, covers:

  • The key properties of GaN
  • What makes GaN FETs unique
  • How GaN compares to other semiconductor technologies
  • The thermal challenges of GaN
  • Ten important facts about GaN technology.

Volume 2, RF Applications of GaN For Dummies, includes:

  • How GaN benefits your system applications
  • Why and when to use GaN
  • Important design factors for GaN
  • GaN's utility in multiple applications
  • Ten keys to success using GaN.

GaN transistors were first demonstrated in the 1990s and now are widely available for commercial and defense applications, based on the high power density and high efficiency that can be achieved. The GaN For Dummies books aim to help both technical and non-technical professionals to learn more about the basics of gallium nitride (GaN) in radio frequency (RF) technology and how they can use GaN in RF product designs.

"GaN technology is rapidly gaining traction for base transceiver stations (BTS), cable TV (CATV) and defense systems because it can meet the exacting performance requirements those applications demand," says Dr Douglas Reep, Qorvo's senior director of research, Infrastructure and Defense Products. "GaN For Dummies provides company leadership, system engineers and designers with a short course introducing the benefits of GaN, illustrating its exceptional reliability and unique performance capabilities."

Market research firm Strategy Analytics forecasts that revenue for GaN RF devices in both military and commercial applications will increase at a compound average annual growth rate (CAAGR) of more than 20% to nearly $560m in 2019.

Both e-book volumes are free and available for download from the GaN For Dummies landing page on the Qorvo website.
