RFMW Introduces High Linearity, Cascadable Gain Block from TriQuint Semiconductors
June 20, 2012 Press Release
RFMW , Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint Semiconductor’s new high
linearity, low-noise, gain block. The TQP3M9038 spans the frequency range of 50 to 4000MHz offering >21dBm P1dB.
The TQP3M9038 provides 15dB of gain with OIP3 >39dB yet has a noise figure of only 2dB, making it suitable for
both receive and transmit circuits. This unconditionally stable amplifier draws 85mA from a single 5V supply and
requires only an external RF choke and blocking/bypass caps for operation. Active bias ensures stable operation
over bias and temperature variations. Packaged in a 3x3mm QFN, the TQP3M9038 complements the
housed in a SOT-89 package. Applications include second and third stage receiver LNAs and general purpose gain
blocks for 3G/4G infrastructure, as well as IF gain blocks for PtP radio and VSAT amplifiers.
