1 - 6 GHz Positive Gain Slope Low Noise Amplifier in SMT Package
The VMMK-3603 is a small and easy-to-use, broadband,
positive gain slope low noise amplifier operating in various
frequency bands from 1 to 6 GHz with typical noise figure
of 1.4 dB. It is housed in the Avago Technologies’ industry-
leading and revolutionary sub-miniature chip scale
package (GaAsCap wafer scale leadless package) which is
small and ultra thin yet can be handled and placed with
standard 0402 pick and place assembly equipment. The
VMMK-3603 provides a typical gain of 17 dB with good
linearity of +25 dBm typical OIP3 and input and output
return losses. It can be operated from 3 V to 5 V power
supply. It is fabricated using Avago Technologies unique
0.25 μm E-mode PHEMT technology which eliminates the
need for negative gate biasing voltage.
