January 17, 2011

RF56023.3  to 5.0 V, 2.3 to 2.7 GHz linear power amplifier

The RF5602 is a linear power amplifier IC designed specifically for medium power applications. The device is manufactured on an advanced InGaP Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) process, and has been designed for use as the final RF amplifier in 802.11b/g/n access point transmitters. The device is provided in a 3mmx3mmx0.45mm, 16-pin, leadless chip carrier with a backside ground.

The RF5602 is designed to maintain linearity over a wide range of supply voltages and power outputs.
