Mouser Electronics adds RF power amplifier ICs from CML Microcircuits
 The three-stage wideband, high-gain and high-efficiency RF power amplifier ICs have a high power gain up to 40dB and up to 60% power efficiency for use in VHF and low UHF radio applications, such as data modules, marine VHF communications, and RF transmitters. They are also suitable for use in wireless-based industrial IoT systems.

The distributor also stocks four series of receiver ICs from the company. The CMX994 is a direct conversion receiver which includes PowerTrade technology to dynamically select power consumption versus performance modes to optimise operating trade-offs. The CMX994A and CMX994E models have extended operation of 50 to 1218MHz and the CMX994G version offers guaranteed down-converter performance to 30MHz.

There is also the CMX7164, a multi-mode wireless data modem that supports multiple modulation schemes and coding systems, which are all configurable under host control with no external codecs or DSP processing required. Adaptive Coded Modulation (ACM) features allow modulation type and block format to be changed on the fly to dynamically select the data block size, coding rate and cyclic redundancy check (CRC) size. The modem uses the company’s FirmASIC component technology for custom modulation schemes.

Finally, there is the SCT2400. This is an integrated digital radio transceiver based on spread spectrum modulation operating in the 2.4GHz ISM frequency range. The transceiver operates over line of sight distances of up to 12km with up to 100mW of output power and can maintain link clarity and security in low-power radio systems. The low power consumption and security features make it suitable for portable, mobile, and wearable products such as fitness trackers, smart clothing, and wireless headsets.
