The RFPA2026 is a 3-stage HBT power amplifier module with
high gain and excellent efficiency. External matching and bias
control allows the RFPA2026 to be optimized for various
applications including small-cell power amplifiers and ultra-linear
driver amplifiers within 700MHz to 2700MHz. Users can also
bypass the first stage to reduce gain and power consumption.
