Two new wideband amplifiers, the MAAM-011229, a Low Noise Amplifier, and the MAAM-011206, a Darlington amplifier have been added to its growing portfolio of high-performance MMICs by MACOM Technology Solutions. The new MAAM-011206 is a versatile, Broadband Darlington Amplifier operating from DC to 15GHz. Both devices will be on show at European Microwave Week in London (October 4-6).

This device outperforms competitive parts with superior frequency range, higher gain of 14dB, improved return loss of >15dB and higher output power drive of 20dBm P1dB.

Housed in a small, 1.5 x 1.2mm plastic SMT package, the MAAM-011206 is compatible with standard pick and place assembly equipment. Functional operation is achieved with single bias from +3 V to +5 V and has the option for current adjustment with an external bias resistor.

Boasting industry leading specs such as Gain and return loss, this amplifier enables real estate constrained customers a superior solution with greater versatility for Test and Measurement, Land Mobile Radios and Wireless and Satellite Communications.

The MAAM-011229 is a 3-5V Broadband Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) covering the frequency of 0.05 to 4GHz.

This 50Ω LNA provides flat gain and excellent return losses to 3.25GHz and out to 4GHz with a 1.2dB roll off while keeping Noise Figure below 2dB.

Simple matching and bias circuit, along with active bias enables the 2mm 8 lead MAAM-011229 to be an excellent, multi-market amplifier for customers.
