The MAAL-011129 is an easy-to-use three stage low noise amplifier with high gain and broadband 50 Ω match. It is designed for operation from 18 to 31.5 GHz and housed in a lead-free 2x2 mm 8-lead PDFN plastic package. The MAAL-011129 has an integrated active bias circuit and bias tee to allow direct connection to VDD without external chokes or DC blocks. The bias current is set by a simple external resistor RB, so the user can customize the power consumption. When VBIAS = 0 V, the device can be placed in power down mode. The MAAL-011129 offers a surface-mount , easy-to-use, low noise amplifier solution that is well suited to diverse receiver applications such as VSAT, Point-to-Point and 24 GHz ISM.
