RF amplifier provides 18 dB of ultra-flat gain
An RF amplifier for CATV applications from MACOM Technology Solutions is available at Richardson RFPD along with full design support. The MAAM-011220 provides 18dB of ultra-flat gain while biased at either 8 or 5V. The amplifier provides excellent linearity, high gain, low noise and low distortion, making it ideally suited for 75Ω infrastructure applications.
The MAAM-011220 is fabricated using GaAs pHEMT technology and is assembled in a SOT-89 plastic package.
Additional key features of the device include:
- Single stage, single-ended
- 8V, 130 mA or 5V, 110mA operation
- Flat gain: 18 dB
- Noise figure:
- 2.6dB @ 50–100MHz
- 2.4dB @ 100–1218MHz
- Low distortion performance
