September 21, 2023 – GENEVA, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc., an Arrow Electronics company, announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for three new Airfast power amplifier modules from NXP Semiconductors.

The new devices are fully integrated Doherty power amplifier modules designed for wireless infrastructure applications that demand high performance in the smallest footprint. They are ideally suited for applications in massive MIMO systems, outdoor small cells and low power remote radio heads.

This family of top-side cooled RF amplifier modules features a packaging innovation designed to enable smaller, thinner and lighter radio units, supporting faster and easier deployment of 5G base stations.

The modules are designed for 32T32R, 200 W radios covering 3.3 GHz to 3.8 GHz. The devices combine NXP’s in-house LDMOS and GaN semiconductor technologies to enable high gain and efficiency with wideband performance, delivering 31 dB gain and 46 percent efficiency over 400 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth:

  • A5M34TG140-TC: 3300–3670 GHz
  • A5M35TG140-TC: 3400–3600 GHz
  • A5M36TG140-TC: 3400–3800 GHz

Evaluation boards are also available.
