Avago showcases small-cell PAs and LTE/WiFi coexistence filters at IMS 2014



Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog
interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial
applications, today announced four RF power amplifiers (PAs) for
Small Cell base transceiver station (BTS) applications and a full
spectrum of LTE/WiFi coexistence FBAR filters for mobile and wireless
infrastructure applications.

Expanding upon Avago's proven MGA-43xxx PA family, Avago introduces the
new MGA-43003, MGA-43013, MGA-43024 and MGA-43040 featuring high
linearity, gain and power-added efficiency (PAE) with integrated power
detector function. Along with the MGA-43xxx PA family, Avago will be
showcasing a full spectrum of LTE/WiFi coexistence filters in the Avago
Booth 1525 at the IMS 2014 exhibition in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA from
June 3rd to 5th.

"Avago is a leading provider of RF front end solutions for Small Cell
applications with the industry's most comprehensive product offering of
LTE PAs and LTE/WiFi coexistence filters," said Ron Ruebusch, senior
vice president and general manager of Avago's Wireless Semiconductor
Division. "The introduction of our four new MGA-43xxx PAs and full
showcase of our LTE/WiFi coexistence filters at IMS 2014 further
demonstrate Avago's commitment to addressing the growing Small Cell
market segment."

"With mobile data demand overwhelming the mobile network, small cells
are becoming an important part of building capacity for LTE," asserted
Joe Madden, principal analyst at Mobile Experts. "The early days of
femtocells are now changing to multi-band, multi-mode small cells where
3G, LTE, and Wi-Fi must operate simultaneously without interference.
The industry needs high-performance RF filters and power amplifiers to
make these multi-mode radio nodes successful."

Pricing and availability
The new MGA-43003, MGA-43013, MGA-43024 and MGA-43040 are priced at
$9.24 USD each in 1,000 unit quantity. Samples and production
quantities are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and
worldwide distribution partners.
