The MAAM-011132 is a packaged driver amplifier that operates from 17.7 - 23.6 GHz. The amplifier provides 23 dB small signal gain. The input and output are internally matched to 50 ohms with on-chip DC blocking capacitors. The 33 dBm output third order intercept point (OIP3) and 21 dBm output P1dB provide excellent linearity for transmit lineups.
The packaged amplifier comes in an industry standard lead free 4 mm QFN package. The device includes on-chip ESD protection structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease the implementation and volume assembly of the packaged part.
The device is specifically designed for use in 18 and 23 GHz point-to-point radios for cellular backhaul applications.
