GREENSBORO, NC–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Guerrilla RF announces the production release of the GRF3012 and GRF3016, two new ultra-wideband gain blocks targeting wideband applications such as instrumentation, microwave backhaul, and general purpose microwave and RF amplification. Each device covers multiple octaves, with frequency ranges from near-DC all the way up to 12 GHz, and global coverage spanning the HF, VHF, UHF, L, S, C and X bands.
When operating at 5 GHz, the GRF3012 draws only 22 mA of current while offering 11 dB of gain, 18 dBm of OIP3 linearity, a compression level of 5 dBm and a noise figure of 5 dB. Its sister part, the GRF3016, offers improved linearity and compression performance in exchange for an increased bias level of 70 mA. At its 5 GHz midpoint, the GRF3016 provides 13.5 dB of gain, 30 dBm of OIP3 linearity, 16.5 dBm of OP1 dB compression, and a low noise figure of just 4.2 dB. Both components come in pin-compatible 1.5mm x 1.5mm 6-pin DFN packages.
Describing the motivation behind the development of these new devices, Ryan Pratt, CEO and Founder of Guerrilla RF, said, “The GRF3012 and GRF3016 represent the next natural progression for our growing family of broadband devices. After identifying specific performance requirements within the instrumentation market, we were able to leverage our extensive library of amplifier cores to create two new devices that deliver an ideal blend of flat gain, linearity, compression and noise performance. Guerrilla RF thrives on this approach to product development; we consistently manage to leverage our extensive library of base designs while using agile development techniques to perfect our product offering.
