Avago Technologies Announces FBAR-Based High-Performance, High-Reliability Band 8 WCDMA Duplexer

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 20, 2009— Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, today announced a high-performance Band 8 WCDMA duplexer. Leveraging the industry best Q values of its FBAR (Film Bulk Acoustic Resonator) technology, Avago’s ACMD-7605 successfully demonstrates a superior 1.3dB typical Tx insertion loss (IL) and 3.5dB max IL over-temperature which significantly lowers power consumption and improves talk time. Achieving superior IL for Band 8 devices is especially difficult due to its wide bandwidth and the close spacing between transmit and receive bands. ACMD-7605 also provides excellent over-temperature isolation performance of 51dB min in the Tx band and 48dB min in the Rx band, which in combination with Avago’s best-in-class insertion loss minimizes sensitivity degradation experienced in over temperature conditions.

The simplified routing architecture in Avago’s ACMD-7605 duplexer eases integration into PCB designs. Additionally, the ACMD-7605 comes packaged in a miniature 3.0 x 3.0 mm module and is RoHS-compliant. ACMD-7605 is ideal for UMTS-based mobile phones, femtocells, repeaters and data terminal applications.
