A US producer of semiconductor technologies has unveiled a new power amplifier which has been optimised for WiMAX systems.
North Carolina-based Radio Frequency Micro Devices (RFMD) announced the availability of the RF5633, which the manufacturer suggests can be incorporated into the designs for numerous applications including wireless infrastructure and WiFi-based high definition interfaces for video distribution networks.
The power amplifier features a power detector into its "industry-leading" 4 mm by 4 mm quad flat no-leads package and the company stated that this minimises "design-in footprint requirements" for electronics manufacturers looking to use the component.
RFMD said the RF5633 can maintain "linearity over a wide range of temperatures and power outputs" and its external match allows tuning for output power "over multiple bands".
The firm specialises in the manufacture of high-performance radio frequency equipment as well as semiconductor technologies and looks to provide "enhanced connectivity" and advanced functionality in mobile phone handsets.
