patented Transient Protected Darlington configuration and is fabricated using InGaP HBT technology.
Simplified Schematic and Pad description
RF-OUT and DC-IN
RF-OUT and DC-IN
RF input pad. This pad requires the use of an external DC blocking capacitor
chosen for the frequency of operation.
RF output and bias pad. DC voltage is present on this pad; therefore a DC block-
ing capacitor is necessary for proper operation. An RF choke is needed to feed
DC bias without loss of RF signal due to the bias connection.
Connections to ground. Use via holes as shown in “Suggested Layout for PCB
Design” to reduce ground path inductance for best performance.
