And You Thought the GRF2501 Was Impressive?

FEBRUARY 9, 2018

The GRF2501 is a world-class WLAN low noise amplifier, but there is a new product that extends our WLAN dominance - the GRF2101.

It offers higher gain, lower NF, better linearity andlower cost. The GRF2101 only requires 1 resistor to set the desired Iddq, and 3 capacitors to provide DC blocking, matching and bias de-coupling.

Take a look at the performance of the GRF2101. With the device biased at 3.3 V and 18 mA, noise figure and gain truly shine.

The GRF2101 is pin compatible with the GRF2501 in an industry-standard 1.5 x 1.5 mm DFN-6 plastic package.

Evaluation boards are available now!

Need to Swap Out Amplifiers in a Common Footprint? No Problem!

JANUARY 10, 2018

With a single, compact layout, you now have access to a wide breadth of RF capability. Product obsolescence? System requirements change? Simply select a different component and move forward. In an ultra-small 1.5 mm DFN-6 package, Guerrilla RF offers a modular RF design system featuring almost 20 devices.

With a single footprint/pinout, you simply need to populate the components required by a particular device. These devices include single and multi-stage amplifiers with a wide variety of gain, NF, linearity, bypass capability and price points to give you ultimate design flexibility.

Flexible supply voltage and current allow for additional performance tradeoffs.

What Is the Quickest Way to Find Your Ideal Amplifier?

DECEMBER 8, 2017

At GRF, applications support is a core competency and focus. We provide detailed support for our customers from initial device selection through prototype evaluation and production ramp. For initial device selection, customer system requirements will determine the radio architecture and the performance goals for each radio section.

Guerrilla Amplifier Image.pngTo select the ideal amplifier device, all critical specs must be considered together. These include:

  • Application Bandwidth (Min and Max Frequency)
  • Gain
  • Gain Flatness and Associated Return Loss
  • Min OP1dB
  • Min OIP3
  • Max NF
  • Bypass Capability
  • Preferred/Available Supply Voltages
  • Max Iddq
  • Operating Temperature
  • Target Cost and Associated Estimated Annual Usage

If you want to find an amplifier as quickly as possible, then provide as many of the above requirements as possible when contacting our applications group. With this information, we can promptly recommend the ideal solution from our device portfolio.

An additional step you can take to expedite the process is rank the above parameters in order of relative importance. This ranking will allow us to manage the usual performance tradeoffs.

Our goal is to provide the most cost-effective, efficient solution that provides the required margin to all your key specifications. We look forward to assisting you with all your current and future design challenges!
