Low insertion loss of 0.3 dB improves system performance while low DC power consumption helps maintain battery life in portable systems. Offered in a compact, 2.0 x 1.25 mm SC-70 package, this Skyworks switch is lead-free and RoHS compliant.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a series of voltage-controlled variable attenuators (VVAs) from Skyworks Solutions. The SKY1223x series of attenuators is suitable for applications such as repeaters, wireless backhaul and wireless infrastructure. The four attenuators in the series, SKY12232-21, SKY12233-11, SKY12235-11 and SKY12236-11, are optimized for low distortion and centered at 1.95, 2.60, 3.15 and 3.8GHz respectively.
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. This highly efficient (51% drain efficiency) LDMOS transistor is internally matched for broadband performance from 2400 to 2500 MHz, supporting ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) applications.
