BALTIMORE, June 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RF Micro Devices, Inc. (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced the expansion of its multi-market product portfolio to include the RFVC1831 — RFVC1844 family of MMIC voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs). The 14 new narrowband VCOs are optimized for the point-to-point (P2P) radio market, with cellular backhaul the leading application. The VCOs are also suited for satellite communications, test & measurement, aerospace & defense, and other defense and commercial applications.

The P2P radio market is growing rapidly, as the proliferation of smartphones and the increasing demand for mobile data are forcing cellular operators to expand capacity in cellular backhaul networks. RFMD's new narrowband MMIC VCOs satisfy operators' capacity expansion requirements by delivering industry-leading phase noise performance and minimal power consumption. The VCOs also feature monolithic construction and exhibit superior performance related to temperature, shock, and vibration.
Jeff Shealy, general manager of RFMD's Defense and Power business unit, said, "RFMD's RFVC1831 through RFVC1844 MMIC VCOs complement our existing RFUV and RFRX product families of integrated up-converters and down-converters and extend our commitment to providing the industry's most comprehensive and most technically advanced product portfolio for point-to-point microwave radio applications."

The excellent phase noise performance of RFMD's RFVC1831 - RFVC1844 MMIC VCOs enables the development of next-generation high capacity radios using complex modulation schemes. The VCOs also feature a common footprint, providing radio designers extra flexibility in designing outdoor base station units (ODUs) covering discrete radio bands from 6GHz to 38GHz. Finally, the VCOs feature integrated dividers that can be disabled if not required in particular applications.
RFMD is exhibiting the above components at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium 2011, June 6-8, at the Baltimore Convention Center, in Booth 1402.

Availability
Samples and production quantities are available now through RFMD's online store at http://www.rfmd.com/products or through local RFMD sales channels. Populated evaluation boards are also available.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
