The CGB7001-BD is a Darlington Configured, high dynamic range, utility gain block amplifier. Designed for applications operating within the DC to 6.0 GHz frequency range, Mimix's broadband, cascadable, gain block amplifiers are ideal solutions for transmit, receive and IF applications. These MMIC amplifiers are available in bare die form. Mimix's InGaP HBT technology and an industry low thermal resistance offer a thermally robust and reliable gain block solution. The InGaP HBT die have extra pads to enable thorough DC testing. This unique test capability and the inclusion of ESD protection on all die, significantly enhances the quality, reliability and ruggedness of these products. With a single bypass capacitor, optional RF choke and two DC blocking capacitors, this gain block amplifier offers significant ease of use in a broad range of applications.
