1.5 – 8 GHz Low Noise
GaAs MMIC Amplifier
Avago’s MGA-86576 is an economical, easy-to-use GaAs
MMIC amplifier that offers low noise and excellent gain
for applications from 1.5 to 8 GHz.
as a high performance 2 dB NF gain block. Alternatively,
with the addition of a simple series inductor at the input, the
device noise figure can be reduced to 1.6 dB at 4 GHz.
The circuit uses state-of-the-art PHEMT technology with
self-biasing current sources, a source-follower interstage,
resistive feedback, and on chip impedance matching
A patented, on-chip active bias circuit allows operation
from a single +5 V power supply. Current consumption
is only 16 mA.
These devices are 100% RF tested to assure consistent
