The CaribouLite RPi HAT boards are in stock and will be shipped shortly after winners are selected. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do so above. Limit one subscription per individual. Thanks for being a part of Qorvo RF Accelerator and good luck!

Ready to power your RF project with Qorvo parts?

You could be eligible to join the Qorvo RF Accelerator! We bring core technologies and radio frequency (RF) solutions to mobile, infrastructure, defense/aerospace, and IoT markets. Our advanced power management solutions use intelligent circuits and converters to help you design more efficient, reliable appliances and devices. We’re looking for great examples of the next generation of products and applications powered by Qorvo technology.

Incentives

While designing, funding, manufacturing, and shipping a new product to happy customers is a reward unto itself, it can’t hurt to have some extra incentives along the way. Qorvo is partnering with Mouser Electronics and Crowd Supply to offer participants a wide array of support and prizes.

Support package for all entries

Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis and solely at the discretion of Qorvo and Crowd Supply.

How to Enter

The first step is to fill out the Crowd Supply project submission form and mention that you’re interested in the Qorvo RF Accelerator.

Ideas to Inspire

While all projects using Qorvo components will be considered, here are some specific areas of interest and parts to inspire you:

Livestreams

Zeke Wheeler and Satellite Tracking

In this Teardown Session, Crowd Supply’s Helen Leigh talks with 12 year old, Zeke Wheeler (KJ7NLL on Youtube), about satellite tracking and ham radio.

Spacewalker LNA

In this session, Crowd Supply’s Helen Leigh talks with Zoltan Doczi, a Senior RF Engineer at Decent Labs. Decent Labs are of the creators of Spacewalker LNA 434 MHz, a device that was developed to combat real-world satellite reception difficulties. In urban environments, it’s often difficult to receive PocketSat and CubeSat signals amidst strong DVB-T, TETRA, FM, and LTE signals from densely packed transmitter towers.

Radio Direction Finding with a KrakenSDR

Locate radio transmitters--even if they don't want to be found! In this workshop, you will track down a radio with the help of a phase coherent software defined radio. Participants will receive a primer on software defined radios, direction finding, and the sport of fox hunting. The workshop may involve walking around outside to locate various transmitters.

Make Electronics Accessible - Teach Workshops!

A workshop on a workshop? What kind of inception nonsense is this? If I know one thing about makers, it's that we like doing stuff with our hands. So rather than just sitting and listening to a talk, in this workshop/talk mashup, you'll be putting together the beginning twist-together "breadboard" I developed for our local Basic Electronics workshops while I talk about my experience in applying for the grant that funded them, developing printed and online supporting materials, researching and buying supplies and tools, developing the curriculum, doing the outreach to folks underrepresented in STEM, and finally teaching the workshops, including how we accommodated people with different needs and abilities. If you'd like to teach workshops and aren't quite sure where to start, this workshop-chat will give you a solid base!

Affordable, Portable, Orbital Desktop Satellite Tracker

Zeke’s invention, the “Affordable, Portable, Orbital Desktop Satellite Tracker,” was designed to track satellites, planets and stars. Zeke modeled the tracker in Tinkercad, 3D-printed it, designed the circuit boards in KiCAD and programmed the tracker in C. His prototype uses an accelerometer and magnetometer to measure antenna position. He hopes to have a Desktop Satellite Tracker Kit in every science classroom someday and is excited to share his invention at Teardown 2024!
