Guerrilla RF gains $1m PTMP wireless infrastructure purchase order

Guerrilla RF Inc (GRF) of Greensboro, NC, USA — which develops and manufactures radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) for wireless applications — has received an initial purchase order (PO) of $1m for a new point-to-multipoint (PTMP) wireless infrastructure design win associated with its GRF2013 gain block. Delivery is scheduled for early second-quarter 2024. Management estimates the upper end of the design win to offer a $3.5m opportunity for calendar year 2024, of which the firm has only included $1m in released projections. This is a new production ramp and adds to existing sales.

“The GRF2013 has proven to be one of our most popular high-performance amplifiers for a multitude of applications,” notes founder & CEO Ryan Pratt. “In this instance, our signature gain block is being used within an access point for a new high-capacity 6GHz PTMP network,” he adds. “This initial PO for the point-to-multipoint market is significant since it represents our first design win for an infrastructure-grade system utilizing the new WiFi 6E standard. The 6E protocol promises to yield sizable gains in subscriber capacity and network scalability for PTMP fixed wireless networks utilizing the expanded 160MHz channels in the new, low-noise 6GHz band.”

Operating over a frequency range of 0.05–8GHz, the GRF2013 is just one of 25+ gain blocks in the company’s portfolio. Each of these gain block variants has been tailored to accentuate specific combinations of gain, noise, linearity and compression performance over select frequency bands of operation. As with all components in the portfolio, these gain blocks target wireless infrastructure applications demanding the highest level of performance.
