Parkervision Unveils Digital Power Amplifier Architecture

ParkerVision introduced a digital power amplifier architecture that enables the manufacture of high performance low cost RF power amplifiers in common silicon semiconductors. Additionally, the company announced that its unique architecture enables models of power amplifiers that inherently perform the function of traditional RF transmitters and totally eliminate the need for traditional transmitter hardware.

ParkerVision said its power amplifiers will benefit from extraordinary yield because they are monolithic (single chip) implementations that can be produced using less expensive, high volume silicon semiconductor processes. The initial ParkerVision digital power amplifier product lineup includes models for:

  • CDMA2000 1x 1xRTT, 1xEV-DO, and 1xEV-DV


  • IMT-2000 W-CDMA for UMTS

  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n gear

  • Bluetooth enabled devices

  • cordless and VoIP Phones

  • multi-mode/multi-band products that combine the standards listed above.

ParkerVision is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida.
