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.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support forSkyworks SKY12213-478LF, a single-pole, single-throw (SPST) switch capable of handling up to 150 W of RF energy. The SKY12213-478LF spans the frequency range of 500 to 6000 MHz with a typical isolation of 23 dB. Based on silicon, SKY12213-478LF is controlled with a single positive power supply and draws minimal current yet insertion loss remains.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for the MiniRF, 4-way splitter, model MRFSP0012. Covering the CATV bandwidth of 5 to 1002 MHz, the MRFSP0012 replaces three, 2-way splitters commonly used to achieve a 1 to 4 split thus saving board space, reducing part count and offering easier design configuration.
RFMW, Ltd. announces a web based tool that allows designers to create semi-custom Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) and Phase Locked Loop (PLL) synthesizers. Designers can search a large database of existing products based on parametric requirements and jump directly to existing product information.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor TGF2040, a discrete 400-Micron GaAs pHEMT FET. Designed using TriQuint’s proven 0.25 um pHEMT process, power and efficiency at high drain bias operating conditions are optimized. The TriQuint TGF2040 supports circuit designs to 20 GHz with up to 26 dBm P1dB, gain up to 13 dB and 55% power-added efficiency (PAE).
RFMW Ltd. and RF Circulator Isolator Inc. (RFCI) announced a worldwide distribution agreement effective April 3, 2013. RFCI acquired the Circulator and Isolator product line from RFMD upon RFMD’s exit of the business. RFMW Ltd. is a specialized distributor providing customers and suppliers with focused distribution of RF and microwave components as well as specialized component-engineering support.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a line of microwave absorbing materials from MAST Technologies. These “tuned frequency” absorbers are electrically optimized for specific applications and intended for customers who experience high frequency cavity resonance effects or high frequency EMI emissions above 18 GHz. Proper application of the absorber eliminates these unwanted signals.
