ParkerVision Launches Operational Amplifier Product Line

10.02.2014
PVOA201 Ideal for 'Internet of Things' Wireless Devices

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 2, 2014 -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, introduced today the PVOA20x series of Operational Amplifiers. The launch product in this series is the PVOA201, a 165 MHz ultra-low power, low noise, fully-differential operational amplifier. The PVOA201 maintains low noise figures and high sensitivity in baseband gain and filtering applications, mating modulators and demodulators with analog/digital converters. The PVOA201 is also an ideal candidate for wireless sensors, low-power data-acquisition systems, and other devices, particularly those deployed in the Internet of Things market, where ultra-low noise, low power dissipation and a wide bandwidth are important. The device allows easy translation from single-ended signals to differential signals on the input or on the output.

"We are very pleased to be introducing the PVOA201," says John Stuckey, ParkerVision's Executive Vice President. "Its excellent performance is complementary to our other RFIC components, giving us the ability to win a larger portion of the customer's total RF system. This product line will also allow us to broaden the types of opportunities in which we can compete."
