Avago Releases High-Gain Linear Power Amplifier for LTE

Avago Technologies introduced a high-gain, high-linearity power amplifier for high-data-rate applications found in 700-800 MHz cellular infrastructure equipment. The new MGA-43128 amplifier features low distortion and high power added efficiency (PAE) that help reduce power consumption. RF input is fully matched while the output includes integrated pre-match circuitry for matching and application simplicity. An integrated bypass switch controlled attenuator provides up to 18.0 dB attenuation, and the device also has a temperature-compensated power detector on chip. Applications include LTE AP, CPE, and Picocell equipment and can also serve as a base station driver amplifier.
