RF Micro Devices Inc. unveiled a highly-integrated front end module (FEM) for Smart Energy/Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) applications at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. RFMD’s single-chip RFFM6403 FEM delivers industry-leading performance, reduces customer design time and speeds customer time-to-market in Smart Energy/AMI applications operating in the 405 to 475 MHz frequency range, as well as for portable battery powered equipment and general 433/470 MHz ISM band systems.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components, introduced the highly-integrated RFFM4501E front end module (FEM) for 802.11ac notebook and mobile equipment applications. RFMD's newest WiFi FEM meets or exceeds the system requirements for 802.11ac connectivity in the 5.150GHz — 5.850GHz frequency band and is optimized to support multiple applications, including notebooks, mobile routers, and low-power customer premises systems.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, has released two new dual matched low noise amplifiers that are ideally suited for balanced high performance RF design configurations. These integrated LNAs are highly linear and offer very low noise figures, high output and include automatic shut-down capability for use in Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency-Domain Duplex (FDD) applications.
Skyworks introduces a highly efficient, broadband, 13 dB gain, GaAs HBT drive amplifier in a small 2 x 2 millimeter quad flat, no lead package. The SKY67130-396LF draws less than 23 mA at 3.3 V, while achieving +39 dBm OIP3, providing the market with a very compelling, high linearity solution. On-die active bias design ensures consistent performance and unconditional stability.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a dual-channel differential amplifier for driving high speed 12- to 18-bit A/D converters. Featuring a 3dB bandwidth of 4.5 GHz, the ADL5566 differential amplifier is optimized for wideband, high IF (intermediate frequency), low distortion, and noise performance out to 500 MHz.
AWT Global has launched a new line of portable passive intermodulation (PIM) testers with an extended carrier power range: the PIM+ series. These systems are equally suited for testing macro cells as well as outdoor and in-building DAS installations. While 2 x 20 W (2 x 43 dBm) carrier power is the reference for standard for PIM test systems, the new PIM+ offers an extended adjustable power range of +15 dBm to +44 dBm for each carrier.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced a new family of solid-state RF amplifiers that instantaneously covers the 10 kHz to 400 MHz frequency range with both 200 and 400 W models. The amplifiers are designed to deliver all the power required for applications using MIL-STD, DO 160, and other automotive standards. These models can be used independently or with AR's RF conducted immunity generators when specific tests require higher powers than our standard CI Systems can generate.
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, announced the availability of the RFFM6903 front end module (FEM). RFMD's highly-integrated RFFM6903 FEM meets or exceeds the system requirements for AMI/AMR smart meter applications operating in the 868MHz — 960 MHz frequency band.
