RFMW announced a dual section, 2-stage power MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit) for application as a general purpose driver or final stage amplifier in white space or ISM applications in the 700 to 1000MHz frequency range.
Created using Ampleon’s GEN8 LDMOS technology, the BLM8G0710S-30PBG power MMIC offers >51 per cent typical drain efficiency and on-chip matching for ease of use, according to the Press release.
Internal ESD protection is added for enhanced reliability. The chip can support a number of circuit topologies including Doherty, Quadrature combined, Push-pull or single ended. Bias is independently internally temperature compensated for both stages.
Small signal gain is >35dB and supply voltage is 28V. Additionally, the chip is Rohs-compliant.
The device is available in gull wing or straight lead outline. For further details, view the full Press release.
