Sirenza Microdevices’ SNA-200 is a GaAs monolithic
broadband amplifier (MMIC) in die form. At 1950 MHz, this
amplifier provides 15.5dB and 13.8dB at 6000 MHz.
DC-6.5 GHz, Cascadable
GaAs HBT MMIC Amplifier
These unconditionally stable amplifiers are designed for use as
general purpose 50 ohm gain blocks. Its small size (0.350m x
0.345mm) and gold metallization make it an ideal choice for
use in hybrid circuits. The SNA-200 is 100% DC tested and
sample tested for RF performance.
External DC decoupling capacitors determine low frequency
response. The use of an external resistor allows for bias
flexibility and stability.
The SNA-200 is supplied in gel paks at 100 devices per pak.
Also available in packaged form (SNA-276 & SNA-286)
