New Freescale Power Amplifier Delivers Unmatched Frequency Range, Gain and Power in a Single 5V Device
XI'AN, China --(Business Wire)--
Freescale (News - Alert) Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL), the global leader in radio
frequency (RF) power transistors, today introduced the first 2W
integrated power amplifier operating with a 5V supply and delivering
more than 40 dB of gain to cover all frequency bands between 1500 MHz
and 2700 MHz. The component supports any cellular standard operating at
this frequency including GSM, 3G, 4G and LTE (News - Alert).
Freescale's versatile, high gain MMZ25333B is suitable for driver and
pre-driver applications in macrocell base stations, and final-stage
applications in small cells. The ultra-high performance and integration
of the PA help customers reduce part counts, streamline supply chains
and optimize costs. And because the device can be used across multiple
platforms and frequency bands, it can be reused from project to project,
simplifying supply chain inventory.
"With this product introduction, Freescale yet again achieves another
industry first that offers complling advantages for our customers,"
said Ritu Favre, senior vice president and general manager of
Freescale's RF business. "No other device covers the significant portion
of the wireless communications spectrum from 1500-2700 MHz and can match
output power of 2W and gain of more than 40 dB. It is a pacesetting
product from the worldwide RF power leader."
The MMZ25333B is a multi-stage power amplifier based on InGaP GaAs HBT
technology and is housed in an industry-standard 4 mm QFN package.
Pricing and availability
Production-ready samples of the MMZ25333B are available now and the
device is planned for full production in April 2014. For more
