Attenuators are designed to reduce the power of a signal with minimal effect on its waveform. The attenuation value ranges from 0 dB to 69 dB with a frequency range from 0 to 86 GHz.
The RF accessory family contains products incidental, supplementary, or supportive of other radio related products, including SIM cards, adapter cables, antenna mounting bases and mounting brackets, hardware, surge protection modules for RF (antenna) cables, programming and configuration tools, OEM power adapters and cable sets, antenna covers, and others.
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 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.
Radio Frequency (RF) modulator products are used to encode information onto a sinusoidal carrier signal by altering the carrier's amplitude, phase, and/or frequency. A receiving device performing the inverse, demodulation operation selectively receives an incoming signal at a desired carrier frequency, translating variations in carrier wave attributes back into its original form. Such an arrangement allows use of a communications channel for simultaneous transmission of multiple messages without interference between them.
RF Power Controller ICs
RF power control ICs are devices used for measuring the amount of radio frequency power in a signal being transmitted, and providing a corresponding feedback signal to a programmable amplifier or similar device to allow a desired level of transmitted signal power to be maintained.
RF Power Dividers/Splitters
RF Power Dividers/Splitters are designed to break an input signal into two or more output signals with a specific phase and amplitude. The insertion loss ranges from 0.1 dB to 6 dB with a frequency range of 0 Hz to 45 GHz.
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 Shields are metal devices that are designed to block or reduce electromagnetic interference to provide protection for components. The characteristics are type, height, length, width, ventilation, and mounting type. The types are CAN, cover, frame, shield 1-piece, and shield 2-piece with the mounting types being adhesive, snap-fit, solder, solder and snap on, surface mount, and through hole.
Radio frequency switch products are devices used for routing RF, IF, or microwave signals between multiple available signal paths. Example applications include antenna selection in multi-antenna (diversity) receivers, selection of a transmit-receive path in multi-mode systems, or switching an antenna between a transmit and receive signal chain.
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.
