GREENSBORO, N.C. -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq: RFMD), a leading provider of proprietary radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) for wireless communications applications, announced today the availability of the RF3305 high linearity amplifier for use in wireless infrastructure applications.

The RF3305 is designed to meet industry specific reliability and thermal requirements to exceed life tests of wireless infrastructure applications. The device is packaged in a 3x3mm QFN package, which is footprint compatible with standard SOT-89 packages and is competitively priced with other SOT-89 offerings. As a pre-driver for the transmit chain, the RF3305 is ideal for use in CDMA and WCDMA applications which require high linearity and low noise figure over a wide dynamic range of 300 MHz to 3000 MHz.

The RF3305 operates from a single 5.0V power supply with a 40 dBm output IP3. The amplifier exhibits 12.5 dB gain, 23 dBm output power, and 3 dB noise figure with an operating current range of 150 mA. The RF3305 is thermally reliable with an 88(degree)C/W Theta JC and a mean time to failure of 542 years.

The RF3305 is manufactured in a high-efficiency GaAs HBT process technology. Priced at $2.48 in quantities of 10,000 units, production quantities are available now in tape and reel format at 2500 pc/reel.
