TriQuint DVGAs Can Reduce Base Station BOMs
April 26, 2012
TriQuint's innovative new high performance, digital variable gain amplifiers (DVGAs) can reduce bills of materials (BOMs) while providing automatic gain control for 3G / 4G base stations, repeaters and similar applications. The new DVGAs include the TQM829007 (600 to 1000 MHz) and the TQM879008 (1.5 to 2.7 GHz). These product solutions combine all required components in leadless 6x6mm, industry-standard packages. The modules include gain blocks, a highly-linear amplifier, matching components, bias chokes, blocking capacitors, and a digitally-controlled, 6-bit attenuator that varies gain through an SPI in 0.5dB steps from 0 to 31.5dB.
