CML Microcircuits RF Power Amplifier

CMX901QT8Component Distributors Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of a new high-gain power amplifier that can operate between 130 MHz and 950 MHz. The CMX901QT8 is a 3-stage device that offers 40 dB of gain with an output power of 2.5 Watts at the lower frequencies and 1.5 Watts at the highest frequencies. It can be operated using a supply voltage range of 2 to 6 Volts, and is housed in a small 5×5 mm plastic QFN package.

CDI currently has sample stock available, along with evaluation boards tuned in popular bands (160 MHz, 435 MHz, and 915 MHz). The evaluation board stock is somewhat limited at this early stage, so please act quickly if you have some interest in this product.
