Looking to design a low noise amplifier. Be it in sub GHz frequencies or higher frequencies up to 12 GHz. We have got you covered ! Infineon Technologies offers one of the widest portfolio of radio frequency transistors which offer exceptionally low NF, high gain, and high linearity at low power consumption levels. The transistors could be used in automotive applications (car antenna) , GNSS, Wireless infrastructure , mobile communication infrastructure , consumer appliances such as LCD TV, set-top boxes, industrial electronics such as automation, lighting , and the list goes on. Along with providing a wide portfolio, our products offer outstanding quality and reliability , assuring long term supply while still having an attractive price.
With the fast adoption of 5G technology, more antennas need to cover even more frequency bands within limited space. This can potentially affect antenna performance and result in higher design complexity. Antenna tuners help address these challenges to ensure fast and stable wireless connection everywhere. Infineon antenna tuners can be found in a variety of applications, such as smartphones, laptops, smartwatches, mobile routers, smart metering or asset tracking devices. In this forum, you can post your questions about Infineon antenna tuners and the coupler to find support from the community for your next project.
A low noise amplifier (LNA) amplifies a very low-power signal without significantly degrading its signal-to-noise ratio. When regular amplifiers amplify signals, additional noise is often introduced to the system. However, by using an electronic LNA, this noise can be significantly reduced. Infineon’s range of low noise amplifier ICs improve receiver sensitivity and thereby achieve the ultimate user experience. Our portfolio of MMIC RF LNAs is continuously updated to satisfy the ever-changing market requirements with custom made products for each application. Highly integrated in the smallest package, our LNA MMICs come with ESD protection and low power consumption, ideal for battery-operated mobile devices. What's more, our innovative SiGe technology delivers lower noise than silicon alternatives and performance comparable to more expensive GaAs counterparts.
I have a desire to design some RF amplifiers in the S-band, around 2 GHz, mostly just to understand a little better and learn more how various styles of amplifier work. But the only RF transistors I can find, especially for power amplifiers, seem to be nearly 50$ apiece from Qorvo or Wolfspeed. Are there any cheap RF transistors I could use while I'm learning (maybe silicon instead of GaN or GaAs)? If so, what would be a good source?
I hope to do a Class A, a Class B, a Class C, and maybe a Class E, and my target Psat would be someplace between 0.5 and 5 W.
In many of the foundry libraries there are options such as “nmos_rf” in addition to standard “nmos” and their layouts are pre-layed out with a guard ring around them.
This makes them a very bad choice when some kind of matching is required in Gilbert mixer or LC VCO as the transistor pairs cannot be interdigitized. Also I will eventually know every parasitic after I layout my circuit and run a parasitic extraction simulation.
So, my question is do you use rf_transistors in a given process and where is the advantage?Show Less
I am component engineer working with Honeywell Aerospace.
Can you please help to share the P1dB Compression Point (dBm) for MPN BF771E6327HTSA1.
hoping to hear from you soon.
Looking to design a broadband (100MHz to 6GHz) RF front and need an LNA. Generally use High Band only from 2.2GHz to 5.0GHz.
- NF: <1dB
- Gain: >15dB
- OP1dB: >+10dBm
- Input no damage: +10dBm
- 3.3V @ 30mA power consumption
I want to build a simple custom receiver (60 - 120 MHz).
I want to use a simple transistor as an amplifier for the RF (It is placed after a band pass filter).
How do I ensure that the transistor has a linear response with minimal noise? Do I have to use some special transistors or type of transistors? (NPN, PNP, MOSFET, JFET, etc?)Show Less
The BGSA142GN12 SP4T switch data sheet shows a single RFC pin. However the PCB footprints for the switch show an RFC1 and RFC2 pin. How should these 2 pins be handled? should they be shorted together? should RFC2 be floating?
I need the the information about price, tehcnical document and also ı need technical support for the product named Bgs110mn20.Show Less
Am looking alternate for BLP8G27-10G, wanted to know if Infineon can support closest alternate part. Functional identical part.
