RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint’s TGM3015-SM, a 3 x 3 mm QFN packaged GaN transistor offering 10 W P3dB. Linear power gain is up to 17.1 dB within the 0.03 to 3.0 GHz bandwidth of this device. PAE3dB of the TGM3015-SM is >62% which typifies TriQuint GaN efficiency.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a pair of 5 GHz power amplifiers designed for 802.11a/n/ac WLAN applications. TriQuint’s TQP5523 and TQP5525 are fully integrated modules with internal matching on both input and output ports. Both TriQuint devices run off 3.3 or 5 V Vcc and integrate a temperature compensated bias network.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three 16 W power amplifiers from Wavelex. The 50-ohm, unconditionally stable PAs operate from a single DC power supply and cover 1805 to 1880, 1930 to 1990, and 2110 to 2170 MHz frequency ranges - common bands for test and measurement applications.
Keysight Technologies Inc. introduced the B2980A Series of femto/picoammeters and electrometers, the world’s first graphical picoammeters and electrometers to confidently measure down to 0.01 fA which is 0.01 x 10-15 A, and up to 10 petaohms (PΩ) which is 10 x 1015 ohms. The B2980A Series meters offers best-in-class performance, with a 2 pA to 20 mA operating range and an internal 1000 V source.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the market’s first TRX module with four full-duplex RFIO ports and other firmware enhancements for the E6640A EXM wireless test set. The TRX module sets a new industry standard, allowing manufacturers to test up to four connected devices with identical RFIO performance and therefore achieve maximum production throughput.
Passive Plus Inc. now offers an extended-value for the traditional NP0, Hi-Q 0505 and 1111 case sizes. These parts exhibit low ESR/ESL, low noise, high self-resonance as well as ultra-stable performance over temperature. Usually used for wireless broadcasting equipment, mobile base stations, GPS, MRI, and radar applications and offered in magnetic and non-magnetic terminations.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability for a new solid state broadband high power amplifier from Empower RF Systems, Inc. The 2175/BBS2E4ARR is suitable for multi-octave bandwidth, high-power continuous wave, modulated, and pulsed applications. It utilizes high-power LDMOS devices that provide wide frequency response, high gain, high peak power capability, and low distortions.
Anritsu Co. breaks new ground in field wireless test with the introduction of the MW82119B PIM Master™, which combines a 40 W, battery-operated PIM analyzer with a 2 MHz to 3 GHz cable and antenna analyzer, eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments to measure the RF performance of a cell site. It is MIL-STD-810G drop test rated and is designed to withstand transportation shock, vibration and harsh outdoor test conditions.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks SKY13453-385LF, a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT), high isolation switch built using SOI technology. The SKY13453-385LF operates over a frequency range of 10 MHz to 6 GHz and can handle up to 2 W of RF input power. Offering high linearity of 57 dBm IP3 and low insertion loss of 0.4 dB, this switch serves T/R functions in applications from white space through dual-band WLAN.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new Peregrine Semiconductor switches. Both the PE42542 and PE42543 are SP4T switches with operating bandwidth of 9 kHz to 18 GHz. Both switches are capable of handling 10 dBm of RF power at 9 kHz. DC power consumption for both the PE42542 and PE42543 is 120-microamps from a 2.3 to 5.5 V supply.
