Richardson RFPD Inc., an Arrow Electronics company, announced the availability and full design support capabilities for the comprehensive RF power multi-chip module (MCM) portfolio for 5G mMIMO from NXP Semiconductors.

These devices are part of NXP’s 5G Airfast solutions product family and include LDMOS power amplifier modules, GaAs pre-driver modules and receiver modules for cellular frequency bands from 2.3 to 3.8 GHz, with output power from 3 to 5 W.

The fully integrated power amplifier modules feature advanced high-performance in-package Doherty, fully matched 50-ohm input/output, multiple gain stages and a small footprint. This combination of features is ideal for scaling mMIMO 5G configuration up to 64T64R.

Key products and features of these RF power MCMs include:
