The Fairchild RF Division of Fairchild Semiconductor Corp. (Andover, MA) has launched its first product since acquiring the RF Components Division of Raytheon Co. The new RMPA0965 is a +3-VDC packaged power amplifier integrated circuit (IC) for use in the 824 to 849-MHz cellular radio band. Supplied in a compact LCC housing measuring 3 x 3 x 1 mm, the amplifier achieves output power of +28 dBm at 1-dB compression with power-added efficiency of 40 percent. With quiescent current of only 55 mA and low leakage current of 1 uA, the amplifier yields long operating lifetimes on a battery charge. According to Russ Wagner, General Manager of Fairchild RF, "the RMPA0965 amplifier is the next addition to our 3 x 3 mm CDMA power amplifier family, further strengthening our entry into this market. This family of 3 x 3 mm PA modules offers reduced overall component count, and takes advantage of InGaP heterojunction-bipolar (HBT) process technology for superior reliability, single-supply operation, high linearity, and reduced power consumption."
