RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, unveiled multiple leading-edge GaN-based CATV amplifiers, in conjunction with the SCTE Cable-TEC Expo in Orlando, FL. The new CATV amplifiers include the RFPD2940 – a best-in-class, high-power GaN-based CATV power-doubler amplifier, as well as GaN-based push-pull CATV amplifiers, RFPP2870 and RFCM3080.
RFMD’s new high linearity WiFi front end modules provide complete integrated solution in a single front end module (FEM) for WiFi systems. The ultra-small form factor and integrated matching minimizes layout area in the application and greatly reduces the number of external components. This simplifies the total front end solution by reducing the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturability costs.
The RFCM2680 is the industry's first surface mount GaN power doubler module aimed at CATV networks. Employing a combination of GaN HEMT and GaAs pHEMT technologies, the device provides high output capability from 45 to 1003 MHz with excellent distortion performance.
Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities of a new 400W SMT hybrid coupler and matching termination from Anaren. Part of the Xinger®-III line, the X3C06A4-03S is a low profile, high performance 400W, 3 dB hybrid coupler for two-way power combining/dividing.
The RFAM2790 is an integrated EDGE QAM amplifier module employing a GaAs pHEMT die, a GaAs MESFET die, a 20 dB range variable attenuator, and a power enable feature. It provides high output power, excellent linearity, and superior return loss performance with low noise and optimal reliability.
Designed for 868MHz and 902 to 928MHz AMR solutions, RFMD’s new RF6549 features separate ports for Rx and Tx paths, and two ports on the output for connecting a diversity solution or a test port. The PA section includes a nominal output power of 28 dBm. The device comes in a 6 mm x 6 mm, 32-pin package.
RFMD’s new RFSA2644/2654 6-bit digital step attenuators (DSAs) feature high linearity over their entire 31.5 dB gain control range with excellent step accuracy in 0.5 dB steps. They are programmed via a serial mode control interface that is both 3 and 5 V compatible.
RFMD’s new small profile, low-cost, drop-in RFCR220x circulators are designed for various wireless applications. They feature robust construction for high reliability, low insertion loss, excellent IMD (Inter-Modulation Distortion) performance, and are magnetically shielded. They are also RoHS compliant.
RFMD's new RFPA1012 GaAs HBT linear power amplifier is specifically designed for wireless infrastructure applications. Using a GaAs HBT fabrication process, this high performance single-stage amplifier achieves a high IP3/DC power ratio that operates over a broad frequency range.
The RF65x9 series of Tx/Rx Modules integrate a complete solution in a single front end module (FEM) for AMI/AMR and Smart Grid solutions. The FEMs integrate a PA, Tx filtering, input and output switches, a Tx or Rx attenuation path, and an LNA with bypass mode.
