MACOM's AM-155 is a coupler feedback amplifier with high intercept and compression points. The use of coupler feedback minimizes noise figure and current in a high intercept amplifier. This amplifier is packaged in a TO-8 package. Due to the internal power dissipation the thermal rise minimized. The ground plane on the PC board should be configured to remove heat from under the package. AM-155 is ideally suited for use where a high intercept, high reliability amplifier is required.
