Guerrilla RF's High Linearity Gain Blocks
with Broadband Compressed Output Power

Guerrilla RF logo - RF Cafe

LAS VEGAS – Sept. 9, 2015 – Guerrilla RF Inc., a leading provider of high performance MMICs, today introduces a new addition to the company's family of high linearity gain blocks featuring a unique combination of simple-application schematic, flat gain and high compressed output power which operate from near DC up to 4 GHz. The GRF2012 and GRF2013 are ideal as cost-effective pre-drivers for today's state-of-the-art broadband GaN high power amplifiers as well as a multitude of general purpose, high-performance gain block applications. Their flat gain and flexible biasing allow for high levels of re-use both within a single design and across platforms.

"Guerrilla RF is proud to offer these new gain blocks which address a critical industry need for cost-effective, broadband pre-drivers for GaN PAs. With flexible biasing and Vdd capability up to 8 volts, these amplifiers provide consistent, broadband, compressed output power that GaN designers have been searching for," said Alan Ake, vice president of applications and technical marketing at Guerrilla RF. "These versatile devices provide high levels of performance covering a wide frequency range, all with internal matching. This results in a low-part count which ultimately yields compact, low-cost solutions for design engineers."

According to Research and Markets, the overall wireless network infrastructure market will witness tremendous growth over the coming years. At a compound annual growth rate of over 5 percent, the market will account for over $104 billion in annual spending by the end of 2020.

About Guerrilla RF's New Gain Blocks

A typical GaN pre-driver application of the GRF2012 and the GRF2013 (announced in May) deliver a compressed output power greater than +25 dBm using 8 volts Vdd over a wide frequency range of 200 to 2600 MHz.  This bandwidth matches up well with the broadband performance capability of some of today's newer GaN PAs.  Their flexible biasing capability allows Vdd over a range from 2.7 to 8.0 volts and the device Iddq can be set independently from the Vdd thus allowing for optimal power consumption and efficiency.

Guerrilla RF also offers SOT-89 variants of the GRF2012 and GRF2013 as the GRF3012 and GRF3013 r respectively.  These SOT-89 variants offer similar broadband compressed output power capability as compared to the GRF2012/2013 devices and can also be used as drop-in replacements for industry standard SOT-89 gain blocks while offering superior performance.

Pricing and Availability

All four devices in this family are sampling now. Pricing for 10,000 parts is $1.48 for the GRF2012 and GRF2013, and $1.10 for the GRF3012 and GRF3013 each.

Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
