RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor’sTQM8M9079 variable gain amplifier (VGA) with a 2200 MHz instantaneous band width. Covering 500 to 2700 MHz, the TQM8M9079 combines two gain blocks with a voltage variable attenuator (VVA) to provide 38 dB of gain with 30 dB gain variation range.
RFMW Ltd. announced July 1, 2013 will mark the 10-year anniversary of the company. With worldwide headquarters in San Jose, CA. and sales offices throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East, the company has seen a continual acceptance of its “niche” philosophy in that “RFMW Ltd. is a specialty electronics distribution company focused on RF and Microwave technology.”
RFMW Ltd. announces application and sales support for the Telemakus LLC TEA13000-12 USB Controlled Digital Attenuator. The TEA13000-12 is used in bench top test or ATE applications and spans a frequency range of 100MHz to 13GHz.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for IXYS RF model IXRFD631, a high-current CMOS gate driver specifically designed to drive MOSFETs in Class D and E HF RF applications as well as other applications requiring ultrafast rise and fall times or short minimum pulse widths.
RFMW, Ltd. provides access to a video overview of the Telemakus, LLC series of USB controlled digital attenuators. Using the TEA4000-7 as an example, the video steps through the functionality of the device by using its built-in GUI. The TEA4000-7 is a laboratory-quality, 7-bit digital attenuator with 31.75 dB range in 0.25 dB steps. The attenuator is fully terminated at all ports with a return loss better than 20 dB from 50 MHz to 4 GHz.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new Peregrine Semiconductor SP5T switches targeting T/R and filter-band switching in Land Mobile Radio (LMR) and Military radio applications where high power handling (17W) is required. Both the PE42850 and PE42851 feature low power consumption of 130 microamperes which helps to extend battery life in mobile applications.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two new broad band, high-performance switches from Peregrine Semiconductor. Targeting the test and measurement market, the PE42520 and PE42521 SPDT switches offer performance to 13GHz at a 36dBm power rating. The resulting input IP3 (IIP3) is 66dBm while IIP2 is 115 dBm.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support forThe IXRFD630 from IXYS RF. This high speed, high-current CMOS gate driver is specifically designed to drive MOSFETs in Class D and E HF RF applications as well as other applications requiring ultrafast rise and fall times or short minimum pulse widths.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support fora discrete 800-Micron GaAs pHEMT FET. The TGF2080 from TriQuint Semiconductor is constructed without via holes thereby allowing for self-biasing and eliminating the need for a negative supply voltage.
