SIRENZA Microdevices has announced the release of a new family of high performance linear power amplifiers for WiMAX (802.16 d/e) and WiFi (802.11 a/b/g) applications.
Available through Caelera , the new SZP series of products are single stage high linearity power amplifier ICs aimed at the emerging WiMAX and the expanding WiFi end markets.
The first two products to be released in the SZP series are the SZP-2026Z and the SZP-3026Z. Produced in InGaP HBT technology, the SZP-3026Z operates over the full 3.0 – 3.8 GHz frequency range with 12dB of gain and provides over +26dBm of linear power @ 2.5% EVM.
The SZP-2026Z covers the 2.1 – 2.7GHz frequency range with over 12.5dB gain and also provides over +26dBm of linear power @ 2.5% EVM.
Both products operate from a single +5Vdc supply and feature an adjustable on-chip active bias circuit providing the designer the flexibility to tailor performance based on the specific application.
The SZP series also features power up/power down control to save power during receive modes in addition to an on-chip power detector.
Housed in a low cost surface mount SOF-26 package, both products have an ESD rating of class 1C (1KV HBM) and MTTF of 1 million hours in accordance with Sirenza’s 3R program for reliable, rugged and robust performance.
The SZP-2026Z and SZP-3026Z are available for immediate shipment in a RoHS compliant, lead-free package.
