RFMD, represented by RF Parts in Australia and New Zealand, has released the new RF3161, a high-power, high-efficiency power amplifier module with integrated power control that provides over 50 dB of control range.
RF3161 is self-contained in a small, thin 6mm x 6mm x 1mm package module with 50 Ohm input and output terminals.
RF3161 is designed for use as the final RF amplifier in GSM850, EGSM900, DCS and PCS handheld digital cellular equipment and other applications in the 824 MHz to 849 MHz, 880 MHz to 915 MHz, 1710 MHz to 1785 MHz and 1850 MHz to 1910 MHz bands.
The RF3161 can be used for GSM and Polar Mod EDGE applications. RF3161 requires no external routing or external components therefore simplifying layout and reducing board space.
Other features include integrated VREG, complete power control solution, large signal polar modulation, improved power flatness through integrated current limiter, 2.5A maximum current draw over VSWR, all phase angles applications 3V, Quad-Band GSM and EDGE compatible.
