RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Tyco Electronics - Press Release 9-13-2007

Tyco Electronics M/A-COM MAAPSS0081Tyco Electronics Introduces New Dual Mode 2.4 - 2.5 GHz ISM Power Amplifier

Low-Cost, RoHS Compliant Amplifier Ideally Suited for Applications that Require Low Control Voltage and High Performance

LOWELL, Mass. – September 13, 2007 –  Tyco Electronics today launched the M/A-COM MAAPSS0081, a new 2.4 – 2.5 GHz ISM three-stage power amplifier specifically designed for cordless applications that require both low control voltage and high performance. With its wide voltage operating range, the MAAPSS0081 is a dual-mode power amplifier which maximizes system performance while reducing DC power consumption.

“The M/A-COM MAAPSS0081 features an integrated power enabler pin providing accurate ramp control and a separate power mode pin for current savings in the lower power mode state,” said David Folding, product manager, Tyco Electronics. “Additional power savings are achieved with a voltage compensation circuit, which is included specifically for applications where the amplifier supply voltage is not regulated and is directly connected to the battery. As a result the M/A-COM MAAPSS0081 is one of the most versatile and cost-effective power amplifiers available on the market today.”

In the High Power mode, the amplifier generates 25 dBm of output power while drawing 300 mA of current. In Low Power mode, the output power is 17 dBm with a current of 110 mA. The M/A-COM MAAPSS0081 has a typical power gain of 25 dB with an operating voltage of 2.5 to 3.0 V. The amplifier is housed in a RoHS compliant 3mm 12-lead PQFN package.

Pricing and Availability

The M/A-COM MAAPSS0081 is available from stock and is priced at $0.35 for quantities of 100,000.
