RFMD launches quad-band and dual-band linear EDGE/GPRS transmit modules

RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA says that its new RF9802 and RF9801 build on its RF716x GPRS family, incorporating full EDGE capability while maintaining a common footprint for ease of phone platform design.

Using RFMD’s patented PowerStar architecture, the RF9802 includes features such as power flattening (for low power and current variation), VBATT tracking (for improved switching performance at low VBATT), and EDGE Low Power Mode. RF9802 is the full quad-band complement to the dual-band RF9801.

Features include what is claimed to be excellent power margin (34dBm low band POUT) for ease of design and calibration; scalability from dual-band to quad-band and GPRS to EDGE using a series of pin-compatible modules; and best-in-class EDGE linearity performance (high band –67dBc ±400kHz ACPR and <3% EVM).

Applications include GSM850/EGSM900/DCS1800/PCS1900 products, and 3V quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE handsets and mobile data products.

The RF9802 and RF9801 are released to production and are sampling now.
