High Gain, High Linearity, Very Low Noise Amplifier
Avago Technologies’ MGA-13116 is a two stage, easy-to-
use GaAs MMIC Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). The LNA has
low noise with good input return loss and high linearity
achieved through the use of Avago Technologies’ propri-
etary 0.25 Pm GaAs Enhancement-mode pHEMT process.
Minimum matching needed for input, output and the
inter-stage between the two LNA.
It is designed for optimum use between 400 MHz to 1.5
GHz. For optimum performance at higher frequency from
1.5 GHz to 2.5 GHz, the MGA-13216 is recommended. Both
MGA-13116 & MGA-13216 share the same package and

Refer to Avago Application Note A004R:
Electrostatic Discharge, Damage and Control.
Notes: Enhancement mode technology employs positive gate bias,
thereby eliminating the need of negative gate voltage associated with
conventional depletion mode devices.
