RF front-end module operates in 24.25–30.5 GHz frequency range
Availability and full design support capabilities for a new RF front-end module from United Monolithic Semiconductors is announced by Richardson RFPD.
The CHC6054-QQA is a high-power front-end incorporating transmit and receive paths and a transmit/receive switch.
It operates in the 24.25–30.5 GHz frequency range and is designed for telecom radio systems applications.
The new HPFE typically exhibits an Rx gain of 18 dB with a low noise figure of 3.2 dB, and a Tx gain of 28 dB with +31 dBm saturated output power.
It features high linearity with an ACPR of -36 dBc at +23 dBm average Pout.
It is manufactured on 150nm gallium nitride on silicon carbide (AlGaN/GaN on SiC) and 150nm gallium arsenide and provided in a cost-effective, plastic QFN 4 mm x 5 mm package.
Additional key features of the CHC6054-QQA include:
- Tx output Psat: +31 dBm (@ 5 dB gain comp)
- Rx input P1dB: -7 dBm
- Up to 1024 QAM with EVM < 3.5% at CS 56 or 112 MHz
