New X-Band Gain Blocks from Guerrilla RF

New InGaP HBT amplifiers provide flat gain responses covering multiple octaves – a critical feature for broadband apps like test and measurement.

Guerrilla RF recently announced the production release of the GRF3012 and GRF3016, two new ultra-wideband gain blocks targeting broadband applications like instrumentation, microwave backhaul, and general-purpose RF and microwave amplification. Each device covers multiple octaves, with frequency ranges extending from near-DC to up to 12 GHz, and overall coverage extending across the HF, VHF, UHF, L, S, C and X bands.

When operating at 5 GHz, the GRF3012 draws only 22 mA of current while delivering 11 dB of gain, 18 dBm of OIP3 linearity, a compression level of 5 dBm, and a noise figure of 5dB.

The GRF3016, provides enhanced linearity and compression performance in exchange for an increased bias level of 70 mA. At its mid-band point of 5 GHz, the GRF3016 provides 13.5 dB of gain, 30 dBm of OIP3 linearity, 16.5 dBm of OP1dB compression, and a low noise figure of only 4.2 dB. Both components come in pin-compatible 1.5mm x 1.5mm, 6-pin DFN packages.
