Qorvoq, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, introduced a full suite of products to enable a reliable vehicle-to-everything (V2X) link in the Telematics Control Unit (TCU) and antenna. The product suite provides a readily available solution for V2X communications as 286 million connected passenger cars are forecast to be added globally from 2019 to 2025.
V2X is an umbrella term for vehicle technology that allows the car to communicate with the environment around it, where information from sensors and other sources travels via low-latency, high-reliability links, paving the way to fully autonomous driving. There are several components of V2X, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) and vehicle-to-network (V2N) communications.
The Qorvo V2X suite includes the first Band 47/Wi-Fi bulk acoustic wave (BAW) coexistence filter, which enables Wi-Fi coexistence with the V2X 5.9 GHz band. This capability is critical to establishing reliable links between vehicles and their surroundings. It also includes two integrated front-end modules (FEMs) that support C-V2X and DSRC systems, a digital step attenuator, transmits/receive switch and low noise amplifier.
