The MAAM-011305 is a broadband, low noise, high dynamic range, single stage MMIC gain block assembled in a lead-free 2 mm 8-LD PDFN plastic package. The amplifier is internally matched to provide flat gain and good return losses to 8 GHz without any external matching components. Use of external matching could extend usable frequency range beyond 8 GHz.
This 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 can be set by an optional 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.
