The MAAL-011078 is a high dynamic range, single stage MMIC LNA with ultra low noise figure, high gain and excellent linearity. This amplifier is designed for operation from 700 MHz to 6 GHz and is housed in a lead-free 2 mm 8-lead PDFN plastic package.
This low noise amplifier has an integrated active bias circuit allowing direct connection to 3 V or 5 V bias and minimizing variations over temperature and process. The bias current is set by an external resistor, so the user can customize the power consumption to fit the application. VBIAS can be utilized as an enable pin to power the device up and down during operation.
In the 50 Ω environment and at 3 V, the MAAL-011078 offers 0.5 dB noise figure at 2.6 GHz, with 22 dB of gain and over 33 dBm output third order intercept point (OIP3). It is ideal for 4G cellular infrastructure and Wi-Fi applications.
