MAALSS0044

Low Noise Amplifier

 MACOM’s MAALSS0044 is a high performance GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier in a lead-free SOIC-8 surface mount package. The MAALSS0044 employs a fully monolithic design which eliminates the need for external tuning networks. It can be biased using 3- or 5-volt supplies and has an option for biasing at higher currents for increased dynamic range. The MAALSS0044 is ideally suited for use where low noise figure, high gain, high dynamic range and low power consumption are required. Typical applications include receiver front ends in the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Japanese Personal Digital Cellular (PDC-1500) markets, as well as standard gain blocks, buffer amps, driver amps and IF amps in both fixed and portable systems. M/A-COM’s MAALSS0044 is fabricated using a mature 0.5-micron gate length GaAs process. The process features full passivation for increased performance reliability.
