The MAAL-011151-DIE is an easy to use, wideband low noise distributed amplifier die. It operates from 2 to 18 GHz and provides 17 dB of linear gain, 16 dBm of P1dB and 4 dB of noise figure at 8 GHz. The input and output are fully matched to 50 Ohm with typical return loss >15 dB.
The RF input and RF output ports are DC blocked. Amplifier control is available through the use of a control circuit or by direct bias injection.
This product is fabricated using a low phase noise HBT process which features full passivation for enhanced reliability.
The MAAL-011151-DIE can be used as a low noise amplifier stage for signal generation applications. This device is ideally suited for Test and Measurement, EW, ECM, and Radar applications where ultra low phase noise and drive power is required.
