Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
RF Micro Devices (RFMD) announced the expansion of its wireless infrastructure product portfolio with the introduction of the SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z power amplifiers (PA). The SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z are one-watt and two-watt, respectively, Indium Gallium Phosphide (InGaP) power amplifiers that address base station applications across all cellular standards and frequencies.
The SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z Class A InGaP power amplifiers exhibit backed-off linearity performance, which is particularly critical to WCDMA high power amplifier (HPA) applications. Housed in RFMD's proprietary SOF-26 package, the SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z lead their product class with lower thermal resistance (Rth) and lower power dissipation while providing RoHS and WEEE compliance. The SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z feature on-chip active bias circuitry and bias control pins, in addition to an input power detector and rugged class 1C ESD rating (greater than 1KV HBM).
The SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z are available in quantities of 1,000 units with immediate sample availability.
