TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. has uncloaked a multi-band, multi-mode power amplifier (MMPA) that the company said simplifies the increasingly complex RF front-end for next-generation global 3G/4G smartphones and other mobile devices. The company added that the compact, highly integrated TRIUMF MMPA achieves best-in-class power-added efficiency, delivering more browsing time.

TriQuint's second-generation TRIUMF MMPA TQM7M9053 is drop-in, pin-compatible with the company's TQM7M9023 MMPA. The TQM7M9053 offers higher efficiency at a lower cost, which already has resulted in several smartphone design wins, boasted the company.

The 5 x 7.5mm TQM7M9053 is a fully matched MMPA that offers quad-band GSM/EDGE and WCDMA/LTE bands 1, 2, 5 and 8 to support the 3G/4G market in North America, Europe and Asia. The company's family of TRIUMF MMPAs combines with TriQuint's SAW and BAW filters to deliver a complete RF front-end solution for smartphones and other mobile devices.

The TQM7M9053 TRIUMF MMPA is shipping now.
