A Balun is a device designed to connect two circuits by converting or unconverting balanced and unbalanced loads. The characteristics are frequency range, impedance -unbalanced/balanced, phase difference, insertion loss, and return loss. The frequency range is from 10kHz to 23.6GHz with an impedance from 1:1 to 100/100Ohm and a phase difference from -155° ±15° to 195°.
RF amplifier products are used for signal gain and buffering purposes in radio frequency applications. They differ from general purpose op amps in that they are typically suitable for use at much higher frequencies and are more inclined to provide a fixed, non-adjustable amount of gain along with input or output impedances of values that match commonly used transmission line characteristic impedance values.
RF Demodulators are devices designed to extract a signal from a modulated waveform, one that has been changed with the use of a frequency, amplitude, phase, amplifier or shifter.
RF detector products are integrated circuits used for the measurement of radio frequency signals. A number of variations are included which are adapted to different purposes, such as indicating the peak amplitude of a measured signal as opposed to its average or RMS amplitude. Common themes found among these products include the ability to measure high frequency signal inputs and transfer functions that are of a logarithmic character.
RF Directional Coupler
RF Directional Couplers are designed to couple a specific amount of electromagnetic power in a transmission line to a secondary line enabling the signal to be used in another circuit. The coupler types are Coupler-with Filter, Dual Band-Dual Path, and Standard with frequencies ranging from DC to 40 GHz. The coupling factor ranges from -20 dB to 49 dB with applications being AGSM, AMPS, CDMA, Cellular, DCS, DECT, E-GSM, General Purpose, GSM, LTE, Military, PCN, PCS, PDC, PHP, S-Band Radar, Telecom, W-CDMA, Wireless LAN, WLAN, and X-Band Radar.
RF Evaluation and Development Kits, Boards
Products in this family are intended to provide or facilitate access to the functionality of a radio frequency related device, in the context of a known implementation. Included focus products range from RF signal chain components such as amplifiers and detectors to modular transceivers, as well as adapter hardware that do not directly incorporate a focus product, but which provide convenient access to a particular RF product or series supplied separately by the user.
RF Front End (LNA + PA)
Products in this family are integrated circuits that integrate one or more of the functions commonly found in the portion of a radio frequency (RF) signal chain that is connected to the system's antenna, such as a low-noise amplifier (LNA) and programmable amplifier (PA). The actual functionality incorporated into any given device varies, with devices targeting relatively narrow applications typically integrating a larger portion of the requisite signal chain than those intended to be more flexible in their application.
RF Misc ICs and Modules
The RF Miscellaneous IC and Module product family is home to a wide variety of unique, specialized, or purpose-specific products used in conjunction with RF, IF, and microwave radio applications. Examples include AM/FM tuners and receivers, bias networks, baseband processors, counters, digitally tunable capacitors, downconverters, frequency multipliers, phase shifters, prescalars, terminators, upconverters, VCOs, and others.
RF mixers, or frequency mixers, are devices with three ports that are used to change the frequency of the two input signals. RF mixers are passive or active devices used for down converting or up converting signals. The characteristics are RF type, frequency, number of mixers, gain, noise figure, secondary attributes, current, and voltage. The frequency range is from 0 to 90 GHz with the number of mixers being 1, 2, 3, or 4.
RF Multiplexers use bi-directional bandpass filters to combine RF signals for transmission through a single coaxial cable or to split a combined signal into separate signals for transmission through independent coax cables. Types of multiplexing include diplexing, duplexing. triplexing, quadplexing and quintplexing. Multiplexors are differentiated by their frequency bands, low band attenuation, high band attenuation, return loss and mounting type.
RF Receivers are used to take in a modulated radio frequency signal and demodulate it and then pass the data along to be processed in the system. The frequency range is AM, FM, WB, and 0Hz to 64GHz with data rates ranging from 250 bps to 16Gbps and a data interface of connector, I2C, I2S, Pads for pins, parallel, PCB, serial, solder pad, SPI, UART, and USB.
RF Transceiver ICs
RF Transceiver ICs are semiconductor devices that consist of a transmitter and a receiver in a single package. Transceivers are designed to function proficiently within an RF family or standard such as AISG, Bluetooth, ISM, VHF, Wi-Fi, cellular, RADAR, 802.15.4 and Z-Wave. They are further classified by the type of modulation and the specific protocol versions. Some ICs include a built-in microcontroller.
RF Transceiver Modules and Modems
RF Transceiver Modules are used to send and/or take in a radio frequency signal. The RF family/Standard is Bluetooth, Cellular, General ISM, GPS, Navigation, SiBeam, WiFi, and 802.15.4 with frequency ranging from 70MHz to 65GHz. The data rates range from 600 bps to 12.3Gbps and a power output from -10dBm to 54dBm.
RF Transmitters are used to send a radio frequency signal and modulate that signal to carry data from a system. The frequency range is from 315Hz to 64GHz with a data rate of 3kbps to 2Mbps and a power output from -30dBm to 24.7dBm. The data interface is connector, I2C, pads for pins, parallel, PCB, serial, solder pad, SPI, UART, and USB and an antenna connection of castellation, on-board, PCB, and through hole.
RFID Evaluation and Development Kits, Boards
RFID Evaluation and Development Kits are a set of items or a circuit board containing items that are used to appraise and diagnose how the semiconductor components associated with the kit/board work and/or how they can be incorporated into a design. These kits/boards are designed to work at the specific frequencies associated with radio frequency identification. The types are active tag, antenna, compiler, coupler chip, crypto and secure memory, data logger, EEPROM, F-RAM, LF antenna driver, LF mainboard, microcontroller, Mifare, near field communication (NFC), read/write, receiver/ASK, RFID keys, RFID reader, sensor demo, or transceiver.
RFID Transponders, Tags
RFID Transponder Tags are small devices that incorporate a receiver and transmitter. These devices communicate with radio frequency identification readers and are designed to work at the specific frequencies associated with radio frequency identification. The characteristics are style, technology, frequency, memory type, and writable memory. The styles are card, coin, encapsulated, glass encapsulated, inlay, key fob, nail, and wristband with frequencies ranging from 100 kHz to 960 MHz.
RFID, RF Access, Monitoring ICs
RFID or RF access monitoring ICs are semiconductor devices configured as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) readers, transponders, passive entry or passive start processors and TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitorying System). They are designed to comply with specific RFID standards such as EPC, ISO, NFC, MiFARE and FeliCa, and communicate over I2C, SPI, UART, USB, PWM, RS232, RS422, RS485 and other interfaces.
