Guerrilla RF introduced the GRF5508 and GRF5510, two new linear power amplifiers the company has released in an effort to expand into the cellular market. The InGaP HBT amplifiers were designed by the company for 5G and 4G wireless infrastructure applications, which require native linearity over temperatures of -40°C to 85°C.

Guerrilla RF introduced the GRF5508 and GRF5510, two new linear power amplifiers the company has released in an effort to expand into the cellular market. The InGaP HBT amplifiers were designed by the company for 5G and 4G wireless infrastructure applications, which require native linearity over temperatures of -40°C to 85°C.

The GRF5508 and GRF5510, which boast frequency ranges of 800-900MHz and 880-960MHz respectively, operate within the n5, n8, n18, n20 and n26 5G new radio (NR) bands. Further, they can deliver 24dBm of linear power over the entire -40°C to 85°C temperature range while maintaining ACLR levels of better than -45dBc, IMD3 levels < -17dBm, EVM levels <1% and PAE Efficiencies > 14%.

According to the company, during the GRF55xx series’ development, the company consulted directly with its base of customers to ensure the devices delivered the best blend of power and linearity, thus maximizing the effective range and throughput for their cellular systems.

The company designed the family of devices to be fully footprint compatible.

Additionally, the family comes in pin-compatible 3mm x 3mm, 16-pin QFN packages.
