The MAAL-011138 is a high dynamic range, single stage MMIC LNA designed to operate from 2.5 GHz to 3.5 GHz assembled in a lead-free 2 mm 8-LD PDFN plastic package. This amplifier has low noise figure, high gain and excellent linearity. In the 50 Ω environment and at +5 V, this device offers low, 1.0 dB noise figure with over 21 dB of typical gain and 28 dBm OIP3.
This LNA is matched to 50 Ω at both the input and output ports. No external RF matching is required. Only a single DC decoupling capacitor is required on the VDD port.
This MAAL-011138 is ideally suited for S-Band Transmit-Receive Modules requiring low noise figure, high gain and excellent output IP3.
