Guerrilla RF launches 700-2700MHz ultra-low-noise amplifier for small cells and distributed antenna systems

Guerrilla RF Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA, which provides monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) to wireless infrastructure original equipment manufacturers for greater coverage area and higher data rates, has introduced its latest ultra-low-noise amplifier (Ultra-LNA), with broadband RF performance for small cells, macro base-stations, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and other wireless devices in the 700-2700MHz band.

"The growing popularity of cellular infrastructure small cells and DAS networks has created the need for a single LNA that can offer outstanding RF performance over a wide range of frequencies," says Alan Ake, VP of applications and technical marketing.

According to Research and Markets, the overall wireless network infrastructure market will increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5%, accounting for over $104bn in annual spending by the end of 2020.

The GRF2104 is a broadband Ultra-LNA designed with flat 20dB gain for small cells and other high-performance applications requiring a single device, which can support multiple frequency bands with a minimum of external components. Internal pre-matching to 50 ohms in a thermally efficient 1.5mm x 1.5mm x 0.5mm plastic package results in a compact, low-cost solution, while its flexible biasing offers high levels of reuse – within a design and across platforms.

Samples and evaluation boards are available now, with full production scheduled for second-quarter 2014. Pricing is $1.60 each in 10,000-unit quantities.
