Guerrilla RF ramping production of ten Ultra-LNA devices; to reach 20 devices by Q4

Guerrilla RF Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA, which provides monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) to wireless network infrastructure original equipment manufacturers, has received volume production orders for its ultra-low-noise amplifier (Ultra-LNA) devices. 

The GRF2051, along with the higher-gain GRF2052, support a wide range of high-performance LNA applications including macro base-stations, small cells, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and other high-performance applications requiring the lowest possible NF along with the highest possible input-referenced linearity.

"These devices showcase our technical capability and allow our customer's systems to achieve maximum receiver sensitivity and dynamic range," says VP of applications & technical marketing Alan Ake. "Their flexible application circuits result in a simple and low-cost implementations that allow for optimal efficiency and re-use," he adds.  

According to Research and Markets, the overall wireless network infrastructure market will see tremendous growth over the coming years. Rising at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5%, the market will account for more than $104bn in annual spending by the end of 2020.

The GRF2051 is claimed to set the standard for ultra-low noise figure and input-referenced linearity over the 1.7–3.8GHz bands, while the GRF2052 provides a higher-gain, ultra-low-noise-figure alternative over the 2.3–4.5GHz bands. Whether used as first-stage LNAs, linear drivers or cascaded gain blocks, their simple external matching, adjustable current and flexible Vdd allow these devices to be used in multiple locations within a single design or across platforms, says the firm. Offered in 2.0mm x 2.0mm x 0.55mm QFN-12 packages, the GRF2051 and GRF2052 operate at temperatures up to +105C.

Full production is underway. Pricing is $1.37 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
