RFMW has announced a 0.5W high-linearity power amplifier from Qorvo applicable for small cell or enterprise Femtocell basestation applications, distributed antenna systems (DAS), repeaters, and/or booster amplifiers.
The TQP9418 integrates two high performance amplifier stages onto a module to allow for a compact system design and requires very few external components for operation.
The company claims that the amplifier provides 31 dB gain and +27.5 dBm linear power over the 1.805 – 1.880 GHz frequency range. Further, the device is able to achieve -48 dBc ACLR at +27.5 dBm output power using 20 MHz LTE signal without the need for external linearization.
The TQP9418 is available in a lead-free/RoHS-compliant 14-pin, 7 x 7 mm surface mount package, with on-chip bias control and temperature control circuits. The amplifier is bias adjustable allowing the amplifier’s power consumption to be optimised.
