CML expands RF power amp family with compact CMX902
CML Microcircuits expands its RF Building Block line with a three-stage wideband, high-gain, high-efficiency RF Power Amplifier IC operating across a wide 130 to 700MHz frequency range.
The CMX902 is suitable for VHF and low UHF radio applications such as data modules, marine VHF communications, general-purpose, low-power RF transmitters and radio applications used in industrial internet of things (IIOT) systems. High power added efficiency (up to 60 per cent at VHF) supports low-voltage battery-powered applications.
The first and second stages of the amplifier operate in a class-A and class-AB mode respectively, and the third stage operates in class-C mode for maximum efficiency. Input and output matched circuits are implemented via external components, allowing designers to adjust for maximum power and efficiency at the desired operating frequency.
The CMX902 offers high power gain up to 39dB and is available from CML Microcircuits in a small footprint measuring 5.0 x 5.0mm. It is a low thermal resistance 28-pin WQFN package, designed for low power and small form factor applications.
CML Microcircuits designs, develops and supplies RF, low power analogue, digital, and mixed-signal semiconductors for wireless communications systems globally.
It has ISO 9001: 2008 certified design, production and marketing facilities and a network of over 100 accredited distributors and representatives. There is also local technical, applications and commercial support, for customer to respond to market demands quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.
CML is supportive of conserving the natural environment and aims to manage its operations in ways that are environmentally friendly and economically viable. CML provides RoHS-compliant, Lead-free (Pb-free) products.
