Guerrilla RF Introduces GRF5506 Linear Power Amplifier

October 14, 2020 Perry Cohen

Guerrilla RF introduced the GRF5506 ¼ W linear power amplifier. The amplifiers were developed for 5G and 4G wireless infrastructure applications that require native linearity over a temperature range of -40°C to 85°C.

The GRF5506, which has a frequency range of 660-720MHz, operates within n12, n28, n71 and n83 5G NR bands. It has the ability to deliver over 24dBm of linear power over the mentioned temperature range. Further, per a company release, it can do so while maintaining ACLR levels of better than -45dBc, IMD3 levels < -23dBm, EVM levels < 1%, and PAE Efficiencies > 15%, all without the air of supplemental linearization schemes like DPD.

The family of GRF55 amplifiers come in pin-compatible 3mm x 3mm, 16-pin QFN packes. The common footprint allows for a single design to address multiple bands with simple component swaps
