TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has introduced three new devices for CATV infrastructure and fiber to the premises (FTTP) applications, including the industry’s first amplifier supporting return path DOCSIS® 3.0 channel bonding with 5 to 300 MHz bandwidth.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor’s TQP3M9037, internally matched, low noise amplifier combining a 0.4 dB noise figure with 20 dB gain and 35 dBm OIP3 in a 2 x 2 mm DFN package. This newest addition to TriQuint’s LNA product line provides an instantaneous bandwidth of 1500 to 2700 MHz and requires only bypass/blocking capacitors and a bias inductor for operation, no matching components are required to achieve this high level of performance.
Aethercomm Inc., has recently completed a high power SSPA using a Gallium Nitride (GaN) with a frequency range covering 2.9 to 3.1 GHz: Aethercomm part number SSPA 2.9-3.1-300. The devices in this amplifier design are not matched, therefore the frequency band is scalable from 2.7 to 2.9 GHz or 2.7 to 3.5 GHz with similar performance. This high power SSPA produces 300 to 400 watts peak output power.
Skyworks introduces a 2.3 to 2.8 gigahertz, two stage, high linearity and high gain (32 dB) low noise amplifier that offers very low noise figure (0.85 db) and excellent return loss (15 db) in a small 4 mm square quad flat, no lead package.
Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., a technology leader in high power amplifier products for satellite communications (SATCOM), introduced a new compact, lightweight and highly efficient solid-state Ku-Band block up converter (BUC) designed for transportable satellite communications uplinks.
Comtech Xicom Technology Inc., a technology leader of high power amplifier products for satellite communication (SATCOM), announced an expanded 12.75 to 14.5 GHz frequency coverage option for its Ku-Band, traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs).
Javelin Semiconductor Inc., innovator of the world’s first high-performance CMOS 3G power amplifier (PA), announced that Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., has selected Javelin’s PA for the new Galaxy S Duos with dual SIM functionality. The Galaxy S Duos is a stylish Android-based smartphone that features a 4-inch touchscreen, 1 GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi.
Mesuro, the Cardiff University spin-out, which offers testing and services solutions for the semiconductor industry, has announced successful completion and installation of its Open Loop Active Harmonic Load Pull system at Miyoshi Corp., Itami, Japan. This system represents the company’s first success in what it sees as the potentially lucrative Japanese market.
