RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a high linearity, active bias, ultra low noise amplifier from Skyworks Solutions. The SKY67103-396LF offers mid-band noise figure of 0.6 dB for receiver applications requiring the lowest possible noise figure yet highly linear performance over a broad frequency range. Covering 500 to 4000 MHz, the SKY67103-396LF provides typical OIP3 of 34 dBm at 3.6 GHz for improved receiver selectivity and sensitivity.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE43713, a 7-bit digital step attenuator featuring “glitch-less” attenuation state transitions, 1.8 V control voltage support and extended operating temperature range to 105 degrees Celsius. These features, in addition to a bypass mode that improves spurious performance make the Peregrine PE43713 ideal for test and measurement applications.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Peregrine Semiconductor’s PE43711, a 7-bit digital step attenuator capable of maintaining 0.25 dB monotonicity through 4 GHz. Operating to 6 GHz, the PE43711 offers 0.5 dB monotonicity through 5 GHz and 1 dB monotonicity through 6 GHz. Featuring “glitch-less” attenuation state transitions, the PE43711 is ideal for 3G/4G infrastructure, land mobile radio (LMR) and point-to-point communication systems.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for NXP’s BLF2425M7LS-250P.
