MACOM’s AMC-176-SMA Connectorizer is a feedback amplifier with high
intercept and compression points. This amplifier is packaged in a TO-8 package. Due to the internal power dissipation the thermal rise should be
minimized. The ground plane on the PC board should be configured to remove heat from under the package. AM-176 is ideally suited for use where a
high intercept, high reliability amplifier is required.
