Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for an internally matched amplifier from Qorvo. The Qorvo TQP9418 spans a frequency range of 1.805 to 1.88 GHz with an output power 27.5 dBm. The TQP9418 offers a best in class linearity of -48 dBc ACLR at 27.5 dBm. With 31 dB of gain, the TQP9418 draws 455 mA from a 4.5 V supply. Applicable for small cell base stations, booster amplifiers and repeaters.
The EDPLO-4000 series phase-locked dielectric resonator oscillator (PLDRO) from Exodus Dynamics externally locks to a 10 MHz reference to achieve crystal stability up to millimeter wave frequencies. Frequency coverage is from 30 MHz to 50 GHz, and the low profile and rugged construction of the RoHS-compliant design provides excellent durability against harsh environments due to shock, vibration, temperature and humidity.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the Qorvo TQP9221, a 2.01 to 2.17 GHz linear amplifier for use in enterprise femtocells, CPE and distributed antenna systems. The TQP9221 offers over 30 dB of gain and is internally matched for design ease while drawing 225 mA from a 4.5 V supply.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for SMA terminated coaxial pigtail cable assemblies from P1dB. The P1CA-SAFPT-034SR-2 is one of a family of pigtail cables that include semi-rigid, conformable and jacketed conformable cable styles. P1dB pigtails are commonly used to inject or sample RF signals during prototyping or testing of RF circuits by simply soldering the unterminated cable end onto a pin, copper trace or test pad.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks dual-band, internally matched, SP4T switch developed for WiFi applications in the 2.4 and 5 GHz ISM bands. The Skyworks SKY13575-639LF supports access points and CPEs along with WLAN test and measurement equipment. Frequency coverage is from 100 MHz to 6 GHz with a maximum insertion loss of 1.4 dB. Isolation ranges from 26 to 40 dB and the SKY13575-639LF can handle up to 32 dBm of input power.
