Richardson RFPD Announces Key RF Amplifier MMICs Designed to
Optimize 3G/4G Infrastructure Base Stations and Repeaters
New FreescaleTM Semiconductor Devices Streamline Development Projects
November 16, 2011 – LaFox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces off-the-shelf availability
for a complete set of key building-block RF amplifiers, each of which has been designed specifically for
enhanced performance in demanding applications such as 3G/4G wireless communications systems. The
product line is based on advanced semiconductor technologies, including InGaP HBT and Enhanced-Mode
GaAs pHEMT (E-pHEMT), providing a superior combination of high dynamic range, low noise figure, and low
intermodulation distortion relative to P1dB. Applications include macrocell down to picocell and femtocell base
station transmitter and receiver designs, tower mount amplifiers, remote radio heads, and RF repeaters. This
high-performance MMIC product line includes devices that can be used in BWA, CDMA, GSM, TD-SCDMA,
UMTS, W-CDMA, and LTE networks.
Five of the latest MMICs from this extensive new RF product line include:
• MMA20312BV – High-efficiency, high-linearity 1-Watt Power Amplifier (Class AB, 2-stage)
o InGaP HBT; 1800-2200 MHz; Gain = 27.2 dB; P1dB = 30.5 dBm; Supply = 3.3 – 5.0 volts
o Driver amplifier in macrocell BTS; output stage in pico/femtocell or repeater application.
• MML09211H – Low Noise Amplifier (LNA)
o E-pHEMT; 400-1400 MHz; Gain = 21.3 dB; NF = 0.52dB; P1dB = 22.0 dBm; Supply = 5.0 volts
• MML20211H – Low Noise Amplifier (LNA)
o E-pHEMT; 1400-2800 MHz; Gain = 18.6 dB; NF = 0.65dB; P1dB = 21.3 dBm; Supply = 5.0 volts
• MMG15241H – General Purpose Amplifier (GPA)
o E-pHEMT; 500-2800 MHz; Gain = 15.9 dB; P1dB = 24.0 dBm; Supply = 5.0 volts
• MMG20271H – General Purpose Amplifier (GPA)
o E-pHEMT; 1500-2700 MHz; Gain = 16.0 dB; P1dB = 27.5 dBm; Supply = 5.0 volts
