Darlington amplifier aids space-constrained designs

Availability and full design support capabilities for a broadband Darlington amplifier from MACOM Technology Solutions has been announced by Richardson RFPD. The MAAM-011206 is a versatile, DC–15GHz Darlington amplifier, with 13.5dB typical gain and +18dBm of output power. The input and output are fully matched to 50Ω.

Third order linearity (OIP3) is typically +28dBm, and reverse isolation is greater than 21dB.

Functional operation is achieved with a single bias voltage VDD, from +3V to +5V. Current adjustment is available with an external bias resistor. 

The MAAM-011206 is housed in a leadless 1.5 mm x 1.2 mm plastic SMT package compatible with standard pick-and-place assembly equipment.

It is fabricated using a GaAs process which features full passivation for increased performance and reliability.

 The device’s gain and return loss performance offers a versatile solution to space-constrained designs for test and measurement, land mobile radio, and wireless and satellite communication applications. 

Additional key features of the MAAM-011206 include noise figure of 4.5dB @ 6GHz and return loss of 15dB @ 0.1–15GHz
