OMMIC announces the introduction of a new Reference Design (Application Board) at 2.5 GHz. This reference design is particularly targeted at new applications such as the 4G mobile standard Long Term Evolution (LTE) and WiMAX base stations in the 2.5 to 2.7 GHz band, but can also be used for other cellular standards.

The Reference Design is based on OMMIC’s new dual LNA the CGY2105XHV. The application board has 18.5 dB of gain and an exceptionally low noise figure of 0.5 dB and high Output IP3 of 32 dBm at 2.5 GHz measured at the board SMA connectors. A 5 V supply is required and the total current consumption is 100 mA. The excellent component tracking of the dual LNA MMIC combined with 3 dB couplers provide input and output matching of better than 20 dB. The 3 dB bandwidth of the board is from 1.6 to 3.1 GHz.

Samples of the CGY2105XHV and the 2.5 GHz application boards are available from stock.
