Our new InP power amplifier demonstrates not only record power density that's at least twice that of any other power amplifier available today, but also provides excellent linearity and power-added efficiency.
The RF3196 power amplifier module includes state-of-the-art power flattening technology, VBAT tracking and RFMD's patented PowerStar([R]) technology to provide a complete power control system.
First, power amplifier efficiency improvements can be realized at non-optimized output power levels.
Konrad Alvarino, general manager of RFMD's components business unit, said, "The RF6280, RF6281 and RF6285 UMTS transmit system strengthens RFMD's position as the number one supplier of UMTS power amplifiers.
Each of these region-specific UMTS front-end modules incorporates the power amplifier, transmit SAW filter and duplexer, which reduces the number of i/o interfaces, and therefore the integration complexity, faced by 3G multimode handset designers.
Nujira is the leading supplier of high efficiency power amplifier technology and related intellectual property for the wireless communications industry.
Financing to Accelerate Production of Nujira's HAT[TM] Modulators that Deliver Higher Efficiency Power Amplifiers
Purchase Order Is First For RFMD's Gallium Nitride (GaN) Power Amplifiers
Sanmina-SCI will manufacture Nujira's HAT[TM] modulator, the key component of Nujira's innovative technology which dramatically improves the power efficiency of RF power amplifiers in WCDMA, CDMA2000, DVB and WiMAX systems, enabling the design of more power-efficient, smaller, lighter and more cost effective base stations and transmitters.
Both WiMAX power amplifier ICs provide 29dBm linear output power with 2.
