RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Qorvo’s 857271 SAW filter for 3G/4G infrastructure intermediate frequency (IF) circuits. Insertion loss of the 857271 is only 11 dB, nearly half the loss of similar performance SAW filter options. With a usable bandwidth of 39.6 MHz, the 857271 also supports general purpose wireless applications where low EVM (3%) is desirable.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Carlisle Interconnect Technologies enhanced performance H5610 series, SMA field replaceable connectors. The H5610 series provides mode free performance to 27 GHz. Low RF leakage (less than 90 dB) is combined with ultra-low VSWR performance (typically 1.15:1) to 27 GHz. The enhanced performance H5610 SMA connector series offers backside interfaces for various pin sizes.
RFMW Ltd. and Southwest Antennas of San Diego, Calif., have announced a distribution agreement effective November 30, 2015. Southwest Antennas manufactures over 600 RF and microwave antennas and accessories operating in frequencies up to 8.5 GHz, with capabilities beyond 20 GHz. 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 Qorvo’s TGA2595-CP, a 27.5 to 31GHz gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier serving VSAT and SatCom applications. The TGA2595-CP offers 8 W of Psat power with a PAE of 22%. Small signal gain is >25 dB. A balanced configuration supports low return loss and improves robustness into non-ideal loads. Drawing 560 mA from a 20 V supply, the Qorvo TGA2595-CP comes in a copper based, flange package.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Qorvo’s 857182 duplexer for Band 17 LTE. Meeting the strict requirements for LTE, the 857182 SAW duplexer offers high rejection. The 710 MHz uplink filter has 45 dB attenuation in the downlink band while the 740 MHz downlink filter offers 50 dB attenuation in the uplink band. Insertion loss is rated at 2.5 dB and usable bandwidth is 12 MHz.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for an ultra-broadband 2-way SMA power divider operating from 1 to 18 GHz. P1dB, Inc. provides the P1PD-SAF-0118G30W-2 as an off-the-shelf item from their vast inventory of in-stock devices. The P1PD-SAF-0118G30W-2 is a Wilkinson design capable of handling 30 W of continuous wave RF power. Maximum insertion loss is 1.0 dB per path.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a Ka-band amplifier with 1 W output power. Qorvo’s TGA4544-SM supports 28 GHz, point-to-point radio and Ka-band linear satellite communication systems in the 26 to 31 GHz frequency range. Available in a 5 x 5 mm QFN package, the TGA4544-SM has 23 dB of gain, a P1dB of 31 dBm and Psat of 32 dBm. OIP3 is rated at 41 dBm. Qorvo has designed this PA for ease-of-use so no matching components are required.
