Austin, TX –– Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) expands its linear amplifier family with the MMZ09332B, a 2W, two-stage, broadband InGaP HBT linear amplifier. It is ideal for use as a driver application in macro and small cell 3G and 4G base stations, smart grids, and other wireless applications.

The MMZ09332B is designed to cover frequencies from 130 to 1000 MHz and operates from a supply voltage of 3 to 5 volts. It provides exceptional linearity for LTE and W-CDMA air interfaces. Since the device has partial internal matching, customers can reduce external matching components in their designs. The bias current can be adjusted by varying the values of the external bias resistors.

The MMZ09332B can handle an RF input overdrive up to 29 dBm, and has a human body model ESD rating of class 1C. The device is based on InGaP HBT technology and is housed in an industry standard 3 mm QFN package.

Application Design Tools Available 

To speed new design development, application tools are available for a range of frequencies and include full characterization and design information in an evaluation board. The evaluation board is available upon request. To download the printed circuit board file, visit


The MMZ09332B is in full production now. For sampling and pricing information, please contact Freescale Semiconductor, a local Freescale sales office, or an authorized distributor.
