MMICs feature in global distribution pact

An exclusive global distribution agreement has been signed by Mouser Electronics and Guerrilla RF, a provider of high-performance monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) to wireless infrastructure manufacturers. The Guerrilla RF product line comprises four series of low-noise amplifiers (LNAs).

The GRF205x series ultra-LNAs boast exceptional noise figure, gain, and linearity, and supports a wide range of high-performance LNA applications.

The devices’ flexible application circuits result in simple, low-cost implementations that allow for optimal efficiency and reuse.

The GRF2501 high-gain ultra-LNA is designed for IEEE 802.11a/n/ac/p applications in the 5GHz band (4.9GHz to 6GHz).

This device exhibits exceptional de-embedded noise figures (NFs) as low as 0.80 dB across the band, along with excellent gain and high linearity. The device uses a single supply voltage from 2.7 to 5V, with a typical bias condition of 3.3V and 1 mA.

The GRF2505 is a broadband ultra-low noise linear amplifier designed for demanding 802.11ac and wireless backhaul LNA and power amplifier (PA) driver applications.

The amplifier exhibits outstanding broadband NF, linearity, and return losses over 4GHz to 6GHz with a single match. The device operates from a single positive supply of 1.8V to 5V with a selectable IDDQ range of 20 to 70mA for optimal efficiency and linearity.

The amplifier is internally matched to 50 Ohms at the input and output ports, requiring only seven external resistor, inductor, and capacitor (RLC) components.

The GRF400x series of broadband low-noise gain blocks are designed for small-cell, wireless infrastructures.

The devices exhibit outstanding radio frequency (RF) performance over multiple GHz bandwidths with little or no external RF matching, delivering excellent NF and linearity over supply voltages ranging from 1.8 to 5V.

Bias currents can be set independently from Vdd, allowing a linear solution with optimal efficiency. The amplifiers are suitable for applications requiring first- or second-stage LNA, or can be used as linear transmit drivers.

The GRF4042 is a high-performance amplifier that offers bypass functionality and incorporates Guerrilla Armor technology, which provides high off-state isolation even in the presence of high-RF input powers.

This isolation is especially useful in TDD systems in which significant transmitter RF power can leak into the transceiver receive path.

Guerrilla RF’s GRF50x0 Power LNA series consists of high-power, low-noise devices that, with simple matching, can be tuned to cover 100MHz up to 6GHz (100MHz to 3.8GHz for the GRF5040) with fractional bandwidths greater than 20 percent. Devices in the GRF50x0 series are ideal for multistage LNA applications, microwave backhaul, and distributed antenna systems.
