||AMI/AMR Smart Energy Transmit/Receive Front End Modules
by RFMDevices - 2013-05-25 10:51 - 3,995 views
The RF65x9 series of Transmit/Receive Modules integrate a complete solution in a single Front-End Module (FEM) for AMI/AMR and Smart Grid solutions. The FEMs integrate a PA, transmit (Tx) filtering, input and output switches, a Tx or receive (Rx) attenuation path, and an LNA with bypass mode. Single-ended input and output are included for optimized ease of use and implementation. The pin-out of the FEM enables users to implement additional filtering external to the module, if needed.

||4.9GHz to 5.85GHz 802.11a/n Front End Module
by RFMDevices - 2013-05-25 10:51 - 4,523 views
The RF5836 provides a complete integrated solution in a single Front End Module (FEM) for WiFi 802.11a/n systems. The ultra small form factor and integrated matching minimizes the layout area in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components. This simplifies the total front end solution by reducing the bill of materials, system footprint, and manufacturability cost. The RF5836 integrates a Power Amplifier (PA), Single Pole Double Throw switch (SP2T), and a power detector coupler for improved accuracy. The device is provided in a 3mmx3mmx0.5mm, 16-pin package. This module meets or exceeds the RF Front End needs of IEEE 802.11a/n WiFi RF systems.
||Analog Controlled Variable Gain Amplifier 400MHz to 2700MHz
by RFMDevices - 2013-05-25 10:50 - 4,367 views
RFMD's RFVA0016 is an integrated analog controlled variable gain amplifier for broadband applications with external matching to allow for configurations in different bands with a single module. It features exceptional linearity over a greater than 30dB gain control range. This variable gain amplifier is controlled by a single 0V to 3.3V positive supply voltage when mode pin is 0V or 5V to 0V positive supply voltage when mode pin is 5V. The RFVA0016 is packaged in a small 5.2mm x 5.2mm leadless laminate MCM which contains thermal vias for ultra-low thermal resistance. This module is external matched to 50Ω at each individual band.
||225MHz to 1215MHz, 9W GaN Wideband Power Amplifier
by RFMDevices - 2013-05-25 10:50 - 4,889 views
The RFHA1006 is a wideband Power Amplifier designed for CW and pulsed applications such as wireless infrastructure, RADAR, two way radios and general purpose amplification. Using an advanced high power density Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductor process, these high-performance amplifiers achieve high efficiency, flat gain, and large instantaneous bandwidth in a single amplifier design. The RFHA1006 is an input matched GaN transistor packaged in an air cavity ceramic package which provides excellent thermal stability through the use of advanced heat sink and power dissipation technologies. Ease of integration is accomplished through the incorporation of optimized input matching network within the package that provides wideband gain and power performance in a single amplifier. An external output match offers the flexibility of further optimizing power and efficiency for any sub-band within the overall bandwidth.
