Extremely small, low current consumption and powerful

Gleichmann Electronics presents NEC Electronics’ new 2.4 GHz HF switches and power amplifiers

(PresseBox) (Dornach, ) Gleichmann Electronics offers new 2.4 GHz HF switches and power amplifiers from NEC Electronics. The devices were designed specially for use in Bluetooth, ZigBee, ISM, wireless USB and WLAN applications and include the world’s smallest dual control switch with dimensions of only 1 x 1 x 0.37 mm. The uPG2158T5K can be operated with 1.8 V or 2.7 V supply voltage, whereby the switching power is up to 24 dBm or 29 dBm, dependent on applied voltage. This device is also available as single control switch under the part number uPG2160T5K.

The slightly larger dimensioned, 1.5 x 1.5 x 0.37 mm, power amplifier uPG2250T5N is also ideally suited for 1.8 V applications. Despite the comparatively low current consumption of approximately 100 mA, the device provides an output power of 20 dBm typical. Even less current consumption of 65 mA is required by the 3 V power amplifier uPG2314T5N, which also provides an output power of 20 dBm typical.

The portfolio of new 2.4 GHz devices is rounded off with the switch devices uPG2162T5N, uPG212163T5N and uPG2164T5N as well as the power amplifiers uPG2315T5T and uPG2318T5N. All of these devices were designed specially for use in WLAN applications.
