GigOptix announces power amplifier chipset for high capacity E-band radios

SAN JOSE, USA: GigOptix Inc. announced the engineering sample release of the EXT7601 and EXT8601 power amplifier chipsets for high capacity E-band radios.

The E-band power amplifier chipsets are comprised of six chips, a pre-amplifier driving two medium power amplifiers that are coupled via two Lange coupler devices with a power detector on the output. These chipsets typically provide a Psat output power of 23dBm in the 71-76 GHz band and 22dBm in the 81-86 GHz band, including power detector losses.

"The EXT7601 and EXT8601 power amplifier chipsets represent a significant addition to GigOptix’s growing portfolio of E-band solutions," stated Andrea Betti-Berutto, CTO of GigOptix. "This new chipset solution leverages GigOptix’s heritage in providing transceiver solutions and enables E-band radio manufacturers to significantly increase the output power of their transmission systems over current solutions. The chipsets enable E-band radios to transmit more data over a longer distance and at a more competitive price than is possible with current market solutions. We expect the chipset solution to be a significant contributor to our future growth in the E-band market."
