Low Noise Amplifiers for GSM, CDMA2000, WCDMA and WiMAX
Avago Technologies has announced a family of low noise amplifiers (LNA) that are optimized for next-generation cellular infrastructure markets. The company is a leading supplier of innovative semiconductor solutions for advanced communications, industrial and commercial applications. With a built-in active bias circuit and current adjustable features, Avago's miniature MGA-631P8 and -632P8 are specifically designed for easy integration into the receiver chain for GSM, CDMA2000, WCDMA and WiMAX base stations and repeaters.
By integrating the external bias circuit into the chip, Avago's new MGA-631P8 and 632P8 provide better temperature response, simplify product design and reduce PCB space. Additionally, a current adjustable gain feature enables customers to tune the LNA to the desired gain fitting, thus lowering bill of materials. Avago has integrated these new features into a compact form factor while continuing to provide industry-low noise figures with superior linearity.
The products are available now through Avago's direct sales channel and worldwide distribution partners.
With three decades of radio frequency and microwave design and manufacturing experience, Avago Technologies can help its customers meet the most demanding technical specifications and pass the most difficult regulatory tests around the world. Avago's reliable RF/microwave components target wireless infrastructure, wireless data (GPS/WLAN/WiMax), handset, digital TV, VSAT and datalink applications and offer numerous benefits, including small packages, excellent power efficiency and industry-leading performance specifications.
