FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE NOVEMBER 29, 2011


RFMD’s new RFSA4013 and RFSA4023 are fully monolithic analog Temperature-Compensating Attenuators (TCAs) featuring exceptional linearity over their entire gain control range. These TCAs are designed to offset the gain reduction of an RF component over temperature without the need for closed loop feedback. Three customer selectable temperature coefficients make these TCAs a flexible solution for RF lineups. Each attenuator incorporates revolutionary new circuit architecture that solves a longstanding industry problem with regards to attenuator architecture: high IP3, low DC current, and broad bandwidth. Traditional approaches for linear temperature-compensating devices require expensive co-fired ceramics with temperature-sensitive materials or current-hungry PIN diodes with elaborate area consuming control circuits. The RFSA4013 and RFSA4023 only require a single supply voltage and two logic bits to set the control attenuation slope versus temperature. Each TCA draws a very low 1mA current and is packaged in a small 3mmx3mm QFN. These attenuators are internally matched to 50Ω over their rated control range and frequency.
