Three-stage Wi-Fi PA modules

20 February 2013 Analogue, Mixed Signal, LSI

RF Micro Devices is offering the new RFPA520x series of three-stage Wi-Fi power amplifier (PA) modules for 802.11b/g/n applications. Each is a high-performance, highly integrated solution with minimal external components, eliminating the need for any external matching components and reducing layout area, bill of materials (BOM) and manufacturing costs. Built with an advanced InGaP HBT process, these PAs have high linear output power while maintaining excellent power added efficiency (PAE). Application areas include consumer premise equipment, picocells and femtocells, data cards and terminals, wireless access points, gateways, routers, set-top boxes and ISM-band transmitters.
