RFMD introduces InGaP HBT PAs for base station applications

RF Micro Devices (RFMD) of Greensboro, NC, USA has introduced the SPA-1426Z (1W) and SPA-1526Z (2W) InGaP-based power amplifiers (PAs) for base station applications across all cellular standards and frequencies.

Housed in RFMD's proprietary SOF-26 package, the two new PAs lead their product class with lower thermal resistance (Rth) and lower power dissipation while providing RoHS and WEEE compliance, says RFMD. Both feature on-chip active bias circuitry and bias control pins, plus an input power detector and rugged class 1C ESD rating (greater than 1KV HBM).

The SPA-1426Z and SPA-1526Z are priced at $5.78 and $7.38, respectively, in quantities of 1,000 units.
