Filtronic Compound Semiconductors announced they are now sampling a new family of packaged MMICs targeting the Wireless Infrastructure (WI) and WiMAX market segments.

The FMA3017QFN, FMA3018QFN and FMA3019QFN MMICs are balanced low noise amplifiers packaged in industry standard, cost-effective RoHS compliant outlines. Each MMIC is designed for optimum performance over the 1.7 to 2 GHz frequency range making them ideal for first, second and third stage front-end base station LNAs. By integrating the input and output couplers on chip these LNAs reduce both board space and component count. The FMA3016QFN is a highly linear power amplifier for 3.5 GHz WiMAX applications. The part offers a 30 dBm transmit power at an EVM of less that 2.5 percent under a 64QAM OFDM signal making it ideally suited to high power CPE applications.

Evaluation boards and samples on all parts are available now from stock. For further details, please visit the Filtronic booth B143 or e-mail:
