SAN JOSE, CA: With an aim to simplify transmitter designs using RF transmitter and transceivers, IDT unveils a new RF amplifier F1423 that provides a small package integrating high performance amplifier and balun for differential inputs.

The F1423 RF amplifier provides 13.1 dB gain with +41.8 dBm OIP3 and 5.1 dB noise figure at 2000MHz. It uses a single 5 V supply and 120 mA of ICC and packaged in a 4x4 mm, 24-VFQFPN package with 50 ohm differential RF input and 50 ohm single-ended RF output impedances for integration into the signal path.

Suitable for high crest factor, high bandwidth, complex modulated 2G, 3G and 4G signals as output of the RF DACs and integrated transceivers, the F1423 operates in a 20 dB Common Mode Rejection Ratio. It offers a streamlined transmitter design for advanced wireless applications.

"Today, the F1423 joins our rapidly expanding lineup of uniquely innovative RF products. The F1423, with its internal balun and matching, reduces solution area and cost and simplifies the transmitter design process. IDT's portfolio spans passive as well as active RF components, and our use of proprietary innovative design technology enables us to deliver cost reducing, SNR-enhancing, highly reliable products in very small packages," says Chris Stephens, GM, RF division, IDT.
