Industry’s first 2W amplifier with more than 40 dB of gain covers frequencies from 1500 to 2700 MHz in a single device, helping to reduce part counts, design time, and costs.
China –Freescale Semiconductor [NYSE: FSL] has introduced the first 2W integrated power amplifier operating with a 5V supply and delivering more than 40 dB of gain to cover all frequency bands between 1500 and 2700 MHz. The component supports any cellular standard operating at this frequency including GSM, 3G, 4G, and LTE.
Freescale’s versatile, high gain MMZ25333B is suitable for driver and pre-driver applications in macro base stations, and final stage applications in small cells. The ultra-high performance and integration of the PA help customers reduce part counts, streamline supply chains, and optimize costs. And because the device can be used across multiple platforms and frequency bands, it can be reused from project to project simplifying supply chain inventory.
“With this product introduction, Freescale yet again achieves another industry first that offers compelling advantages for our customers,” says Ritu Favre, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale’s RF business. “No other device covers the significant portion of the wireless communications spectrum from 1500-2700 MHz and can match output power of 2W and gain of more than 40 dB. It is a pacesetting device from the worldwide RF power leader.”
The MMZ25333B is a multi-stage power amplifier based on InGaP GaAs HBT technology and is housed in an industry-standard 4 mm QFN package.
