RFMD adds to LNA product family

RFMD has started pre-production sampling of five new GaAs pHEMT low noise amplifiers (LNAs) for GSM, CDMA, UMTS, EDGE and WiMAX air interface standards. Full production is due to begin in September 2006.

The new LNAs form part of RFMD’s RF386x product family: RF3861, RF3863, RF3865, RF3866 and RF3867. Offering a broadband frequency range of 380-3800 MHz with low noise figure (0.7dB) and a variety of LNA configurations (single-stage, dual-stage and dual-channel), these amplifiers provide flexible supply voltages (2.5V to 6.0V), high gain (up to 30dB), very high output IP3 (up to +38dBm) and excellent input and output return loss. In addition, RFMD's LNA products are packaged in a low-cost, 5x5 mm plastic QFN package.
