Discovery Semiconductors offers 30 kHz to 45 GHz RF amplifier

July 12, 2013
Discovery Semiconductors has unveiled a wideband RF amplifier that operates from 30 kHz to 45 GHz. An optional integrated bias tee is available to set and control the bias current operating point of 25-Gbps/40-Gbps VCSEL transmitters. Additional applications include bit-error ratio (BER) and impulse response measurements.

Discovery Semiconductors has unveiled a wideband RF amplifier that operates from 30 kHz to 45 GHz. An optional integrated bias tee is available to set and control the bias current operating point of 25-Gbps/40-Gbps VCSEL transmitters. Additional applications include bit-error ratio (BER) and impulse response measurements.

The RF amplifier’s low frequency cutoff of 30 kHz makes it suitable for recovery of the low-frequency Fourier components of impulse signals and digital communications. Its gain block is powered from a single regulated internal +5V DC supply. It also may be powered from a +9V DC battery for up to 10 hours.

The low power dissipation removes the need for a heat sink. Other features include a small physical size and low group delay.
