Amp Eyes 3V Handhelds

The RF2186 linear amplifier is designed for use as the final RF amplifier in 3V CDMA2000 and WCDMA/UMTS handsets, spread spectrum systems, and other applications in the 1920 MHz to 1980 MHz band. In addition to compliance with 3G standards, the RF2186 is backward compatible with existing 2G and next generation 2.5G systems. Operating from a single 3V power supply, the self-contained device delivers 27 dBm linear output power, 31 dB linear gain, and 35% linear efficiency. Typical applications for the RF2186 include 3V 1850-to-1910 MHz CDMA2000 handsets, 3V 1920-to-1980 MHz WCDMA/UMTS handsets, spread spectrum systems, commercial systems, consumer systems and portable battery-powered equipment. The RF2186 is manufactured using a gallium arsenide heterojunction bipolar transistor process technology. Furnished in an MLF-16 package, the IC is priced at $4.10 each in order quantities exceeding 10,000.
