RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for NXP’s BGA6130, a single stage MMIC amplifier offering 1 W (30 dBm) output power. Driven from a single, 3.6 V supply, the BGA6130 draws only 70 mA of current. Typical gain is approximately 15 dB and efficiencies >55% are achievable. The NXP BGA6130 features a simple quiescent current adjustment allowing class AB operation.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for ten new surface mount circulators from RFCI. Available at popular base station frequencies from 728 to 2690 MHz, these pin-style, surface mount circulators offer 500 W peak forward power handling and 80 to 100 W reverse power handling depending on package size.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced new versions of its IO Libraries Suite and Command Expert software products. The two software updates provide increased capability and improved usability. IO Libraries Suite 17 is the next generation of instrument control and with the latest version of Command Expert, users will find it even easier to make measurements and send signals.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a temperature compensated voltage controlled attenuator. RFMD's RFSA2013 provides a linear attenuation slope versus control voltage with very little sensitivity to temperature changes. Built on SOI technology, linearity exceeds that of FET based designs. IIP3 linearity of the RFSA2013 is >50 dBm.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced the availability of its Method of Implementation (MOI) document for the transmitter/receiver (Tx/Rx) interface S-parameter and impedance tests defined in version 1.1 of the MIPI Alliance Specification for D-PHY. The MOI, together with a test package such as a state file, works with the ENA Series network analyzer’s enhanced time domain analysis option (E5071C-TDR).
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a DOCSIS 3.1 compliant single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch from Peregrine Semiconductor. The PE42722 operates from 5 to 1794 MHz. Insertion loss is rated at 0.3 dB while offering up to 50 dB of isolation. Second harmonic performance is -119 dBc at 800 MHz with a 65 dBmV transmit input while the PE42722 third order performance is -138 dBc.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 2.4 GHz, smart energy, front end module (FEM) from Skyworks Solutions. The SE2438T-R is fully integrated for ZigBee applications including embedded lighting controls were high temperature (+125 degree C) operation is needed. SE2438T-R contains integrated inter-stage matching, harmonic filters, and 1.6 to 3.6 V CMOS compatible digital control.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a Ku-Band SPDT switch capable of handling 5 W RF power. The TriQuint TGS4310 offers >20 isolation with a low insertion loss of <1.7 dB. Designed for use by Ku-Band system providers, the TGS4310 supports radar, instrumentation and communication applications.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3668, a 400 mA, 40 V step-down switching regulator with dual tracking LDO outputs packaged in an MSOP-16E. The LT3668 operates from a VIN range of 4.3 to 40 V with transient protection to 60 V, making it ideal for automotive and industrial applications. Its internal 600 mA switch can deliver up to 400 mA.
Richardson RFPD Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for three new 20 W power amplifiers from Wavelex. The new 50-ohm, unconditionally stable PAs operate from a single DC power supply and cover down to 820 MHz and up to at least 890 MHz. They feature infinite load VSWR protection and a minimum of 50% power added efficiency, and they are SMA-connectorized.
