RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support fora 50 W, surface mount, directional coupler serving 15 to 18.5 GHz applications. The EMC Technology DN05W20F provides a 20 dB coupling factor with only 0.6 dB insertion loss. Directivity is 32 dB min from 17 to 18.5 GHz while the DN05W20F maintains a maximum VSWR of 1.6:1.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 5 to 8 GHz GaN driver amplifier. The TriQuint TGA2599-SMoffers 2 W of output power with >23 dB of small signal gain. Using a 25 V bias and drawing only 50 mA, the TGA2599-SMis compatible with TriQuint’s high power amplifiers, easing the burden of multiple bias supplies.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a family of linear output power amplifiers to support small cell and repeater applications. The Skyworks SKY660XX amplifiers meet the stringent spectral linearity requirements of WCDMA and offer high PAE and margin. The SKY660XX family requires minimum design time and board space as they are fully matched and run off a single DC supply voltage.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for the TGA2620-SM, TriQuint’s 16 to 18 GHz driver amplifier delivering 19 dBm Psat for commercial and military radar and 18 dBm P1dB for communication systems. Small signal gain is up to 20 dB. The TGA2620-SM draws only 30 mA from a 6 V bias supply.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a dual channel digital variable gain amplifier. TriQuint’s TQC9311 offers the lowest noise figure for any currently available dual channel DVGA. The low noise figure of 3.8 dB makes the TQC9311 ideal for use before a mixer in small cell and DAS applications. Covering 0.4 to 3.6 GHz, the TriQuint TQC9311 complies with 1.8 or 3.3 V logic.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support fora 50 W, surface mount, directional coupler serving 14.5 to 19.7 GHz applications. The EMC Technology DN05Z15F provides a 15 dB coupling factor with only 0.5 dB insertion loss in the main band of 15 to 19 GHz. Directivity is a strong, 28 dB min. Maximum VSWR in the DN05Z15F main band is 1.3:1. As a purely passive device, reliability is assured.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for NXP’s BGA6130, a single stage MMIC amplifier offering 1 W (30 dBm) output power. Driven from a single, 3.6 V supply, the BGA6130 draws only 70 mA of current. Typical gain is approximately 15 dB and efficiencies >55% are achievable. The NXP BGA6130 features a simple quiescent current adjustment allowing class AB operation.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for ten new surface mount circulators from RFCI. Available at popular base station frequencies from 728 to 2690 MHz, these pin-style, surface mount circulators offer 500 W peak forward power handling and 80 to 100 W reverse power handling depending on package size.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a temperature compensated voltage controlled attenuator. RFMD's RFSA2013 provides a linear attenuation slope versus control voltage with very little sensitivity to temperature changes. Built on SOI technology, linearity exceeds that of FET based designs. IIP3 linearity of the RFSA2013 is >50 dBm.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a DOCSIS 3.1 compliant single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch from Peregrine Semiconductor. The PE42722 operates from 5 to 1794 MHz. Insertion loss is rated at 0.3 dB while offering up to 50 dB of isolation. Second harmonic performance is -119 dBc at 800 MHz with a 65 dBmV transmit input while the PE42722 third order performance is -138 dBc.
