Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new high frequency, high power, 7-bit digital step attenuator (DSA) from Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine).
Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduces four linear power amplifiers for LTE and WCDMA applications. The fully matched surface mount SKY66001-11 (2110 to 2170 MHz), SKY66002-11 (1900 to 2025 MHz), SKY66005-11 (850 to 920 MHz) and SKY66008-11 (900 to 990 MHz) modules meet the stringent spectral linearity requirements of femtocell applications with high power-added efficiency. An integrated directional coupler eliminates the need for any external coupler.
Skyworks introduces a low noise amplifier with high linearity and excellent return loss, while drawing as low as 5 mA of bias current. The internal active bias circuitry of the SKY67015-396LF LNA provides stable performance over temperature and process variation.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced the highest performance, carrier-grade Wi-Fi switch on the market. With the highest isolation by a factor of 50, Peregrine’s switch also sets a new bar in linearity, which makes it ideally suited for the fast-growing market of 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), announced that it supplies the main antenna switch driving RF performance in the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) smartphone. The PE421280 MultiSwitch was selected for its ability to support simultaneous multi-band operation of up to 14 frequency bands while delivering exceptional linearity, insertion loss performance and small size.
OML introduces millimeter wave intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements to target emerging gigabit applications such as WirelessHD, WiGig, 802.11ad and E-band point-to-point radios. In these applications, the linearity of amplifiers and transceivers can adversely affect bit terror rate, especially those involving higher order modulation.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. announced it is expanding its family of MultiSwitch™ STeP8 dual single-pole, seven throw (SP7T/SP7T) UltraCMOS® antenna switches optimized to solve the significant carrier aggregation challenges of 4G mobile wireless applications.
Nujira Ltd., the world’s leader in Envelope Tracking (ET) technology, will be presenting new performance results at the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) this week demonstrating that the company has bettered its own world record linearity mark for an RF Power Amplifier (PA) operating under ET conditions.
