High Power RF Amplifier for WLAN Applications: SST11CP16

The SST11CP16 High Power RF Amplifier is designed to extend the range of 802.11ac systems. Its low EVM and high linear power make it an ideal option for set-top boxes, routers, access points, and other WiFi devices that require data rates of up to 3 Gbps for applications such as wireless streaming video.

This power amplifier also features a 50 ohm on-chip input and simple output match, resulting in smaller board sizes and ease of use. The amplifier is compact, with a 3x3x.45 mm, 16-pin QFN package.

Existing 802.11 standards can also take advantage of the SST11CP16’s features, at the following performance rates:

  • 802.11a:  3% added EVM for 54 Mbps at 22 dBm; spectrum-mask compliant up to 25.5 dBm using Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing
  • 802.11n:  Spectrum-mask compliant up to 24.5 dBm using High-Throughput 20 MHz mode
