RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD) has announced the introduction of the RF3198 dual-band power amplifier (PA) module. The RF3198 PowerStar PA module provides ease of implementation and optimised performance to manufacturers of dual-band handsets for the growing entry-level and replacement markets.

"We expect the RF3198 PowerStar PA module to provide the lowest functional cost of ownership for handset models focused on the entry-level and replacement handset markets," said Konrad Alvarino, general manager of RFMD's components business unit.

The RF3198 extends RFMD's portfolio of power amplifiers and represents the latest generation of the company's PowerStar family of PAs.

The improved isolation, harmonic performance and cross-band coupling of the RF3198 reduce RF complexity and increase design flexibility related to antenna and switch selection. Additionally, these improvements simplify calibration and increase manufacturing yields, thereby accelerating time-to-market and reducing total cost of ownership. The RF3198 is pin-for-pin compatible with RFMD's RF3146 family of PowerStar PA modules.

The RF3198 is packaged in a low-cost 7-by-7-by-0.9mm package and complies fully with the RoHS directive. The RF3198 is currently available for 98 cents in quantities of one million pieces.
