What is auto-switching versus manual switching?

Switching between Transmit (TX) and Receive (RX) in our Bi-Directional Amplifiers can be accomplished in two methods, manual or auto. Manual switching is preformed through a user-operated pin in a typical TTL configuration. A HIGH signal (+3V to +5V) will put the amplifier in TX mode which turns the receive side off, turns the transmit side on, and changes the internal switches to the transmit path. A LOW signal (0V) will put the amplifier in RX mode which turns the transmit side off, turns the receive side on, and changes the internal switches to the receive path.

Auto switching accomplishes the same tasks except the control to switch from one mode to the other is determined by the RF input power from the RADIO. The amplifier is constantly in RX mode until RF is detected from the RADIO. Once that power crosses a pre-determined threshold, typically 0 dBm (1 mW), the unit will turn on the transmit path. Once the detected power goes below -4 dBm, the unit will turn back to receive until RF is once again detected from the RADIO.

What sort of heat-sinking / cooling methods are required on Triad RF module-form products?

Many of our product lines come equipped with sufficient heat-sinking for operation without the need for cooling fans under lab/bench-top conditions. A “max convection cooled ambient temperature” specification is provided for all products that have heat-sinks integrated into their housings. When operating above that maximum, sufficient airflow will be required to keep the unit within its safe operating temperature range. Consult your Triad RF sales representative or technician for documentation that will guide you on how much airflow will be required for your application.

What types of radios are Triad RF products compatible with?

Triad RF products are compatible with almost every commercial TDD or FDD radio system utilizing any type of modulation, from single carrier CW/FM to high peak to average OFDM signals such as 802.11, 802.16 and DVB. The PA module is modulation agnostic and its pre-distortion circuitry will automatically adapt its correction coefficients for optimal linearity. The only precautions that need to be observed are as follows:
a. Ensuring that the input power to the module is at or below the maximum input level specified on the spec sheet.
b. Check that the module is powered by a DC supply that has enough wattage output to ensure that the DC voltage does not drop below the minimum input voltage on the spec sheet.

What options do you typically supply with your products?

Our standard units come with standard pin and control options such as TTL on/off, temperature monitoring and forward power detection. However, if you require something specific, we can usually accommodate any needed options into our amplifiers. Give us a call and find out what we can do for you.
