Avago Technologies has introduced a linear power amplifier module for mobile and fixed wireless data WiMAX applications that include WiFi, GPS, PCS and other radios found in portable electronics.

The MGA-22103 module features an aggressive gain shape that limits the noise injected into radio receivers co-located in the same device, enabling WiMAX to coexist with WiFi, GPS, PCS and other radios in handsets, tablets, USB dongles and other portable electronics.

The MGA-22103 linear power amplifier is cost-effective and meets industry-standard Spectral Emission Mask (SEM) tests operating at 3.3V.

Covering a frequency range of 2.5 to 2.7GHz, the power amplifier includes fully integrated RF matching.

These features are integrated in a compact 3 x 3 x 1mm package, allowing designers to achieve standards-compliant performance in space-constrained designs.

Leveraging Avago proprietary GaAs enhancement-mode pHEMT technology, the MGA-22103 module can be used for most high-linearity applications.

With high performance across a range of voltage and temperature levels, the module exhibits flat gain and good matching while providing linear power efficiency to meet stringent mask conditions.

The MGA-22103 module meets the IEEE 802.16 WiMAX mask at over 25dBm power, with high gain of 35dB across the band.

Additionally, a low power mode allows operation at approximately 80mA when only minimal power is required.

Samples and production quantities are available now through the Avago direct sales channel and via worldwide distribution partners.

The module is available as part of the Sequans SQN1210 reference design for USB dongles.
