An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Avago Technologies has expanded its high-performance power amplifier range with the MGA-31589 and MGA-31689 0.5-watt gain blocks, suitable for cellular infrastructure applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Data modems dedicated to telematics and telemetry from U-blox: "The LISA-H and LISA-U UMTS/HSDPA data modems from U-blox are dedicated to telematics and telemetry applications that typically require only data and not the full 3G bandwidth. ".

In October 2010, we covered the news from U-blox - take a look at U-blox launches ultra-fast wireless modems which says: "U-blox has introduced a range of small, ultra-fast wireless modems for high-bandwidth applications such as mobile computing, car infotainment, telematics systems and handheld terminals.".

Take a look also at the news release from Avago Technologies, Avago develops LNAs for BTS RF front-end design, as well as Power amplifier modules maximise handset talk time from Avago Technologies, and Panorama releases in-building antennas from Panorama Antennas .
