MACOM's MAAM12000-A1 is a wide band, low noise, MMIC amplifier housed in a lead-free, small 8-lead ceramic package. It includes two integrated gain stages and employs series inductive feedback to obtain excellent noise figure and a good, 50-ohm, input and output impedance match over the 1.2 to 1.75 GHz band. The MAAM12000-A1 is fully monolithic, requires no external components and is provided in a low-cost, user-friendly, microwave package. The MAAM12000-A1 is ideally suited to receivers in GPS and DGPS applications and operates over both the L1 and L2 frequency bands. Because of its wide bandwidth, the MAAM12000-A1 can also be used as a driver, buffer or IF amplifier in numerous commercial and government system applications that require high gain, excellent linearity and low power consumption. The MAAM12000-A1 is manufactured in-house using a reliable, 0.5 micron, GaAs MESFET process. This product is 100% RF tested to ensure compliance to performance specifications.
