µPG2251T6M PAs

California Eastern Laboratories debuts theµPG2251T6M GaAs power amplifier (PA) that eliminates the need for RF component matching, thereby reducing part count, saving BOM cost, and simplifying procurement.

The device is intended for applications such as Bluetooth modules that are designed into notebooks, mobile phones, and headsets as well as 802.15.4/Zigbee modules which have wide applicability in automatic meter reading, wireless security, cable replacement, and intelligent lighting control systems.

At 2mm x 2 mm, theµPG2251T6M is one of the smallest PAs in the industry, enabling product designs where PCB space is scarce such as smart phones, digital cameras, handheld gaming devices and other consumer electronics.

Values are typical at 2.45GHz, Pin = -5dBm. It is housed in a 12-pin TQFN, measuring 2mm x 2mm x 0.37mm. Frequency range is 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz.

Pricing for theµPG2251T6M is Rs.37.87 ($0.82) in quantities of 100,000.
