Orlando, Fla.RF Micro Devices Inc. is sampling the RF3161, a quad-band EDGE power amplifier (PA) module that is designed to support merchant-market EDGE transceivers that implement large signal polar modulation (LSPM) transmit architectures.
The RF3161 quad-band EDGE PA module comes in a 6-mm x 6-mm package that when combined with its high-integration level provides what the company says is the smallest EDGE PA product in its class.
By limiting the number of external components and eliminating external routing during customer implementation, the RF3161 reduces manufacturers' total bill of materials costs and reduces time to market, according to RFMD. The RF3161 employs RFMD's PowerStar integrated power control architecture to provide GMSK efficiencies without impacting EDGE performance.
RFMD will showcase its product portfolio at the CTIA Wireless 2007 show in Orlando, Florida, March 27-29, 2007, in Hall B2, Booth 3251.
