RFPD has introduced a pair of highly linear and efficient, fully-matched power amplifier modules designed for picocells and femtocells from Anadigics. Both devices are designed for WCDMA, HSDPA and LTE downlink air interfaces operating in the 2.11 GHz to 2.17 GHz band. The power amplifier modules are designed for use in small cell base stations, offering a combination of high linearity, output power, efficiency and reliability that provides design flexibility to meet the needs of small cell infrastructure architectures.
The AWB7127 power amplifier module offers high-power efficiency and low adjacent-channel power levels. It delivers up to +24.5 dBm of WCDMA (64 DPCH) power with a typical ACPR of -50 dBc (max is -47dBc), operates from a convenient +4.2 V supply, and provides 30 dB of gain.
The AWB7227 power amplifier multi-chip-module (MCM) delivers up to +27 dBm of WCDMA (64 DPCH) power with a typical ACPR better than -50 dBc (max is -47dBc), operates from a convenient +4.5 V supply, and provides 29 dB of gain. www.richardsonrfpd.com
