Now available in 5 mm industry standard AQFN packaging for pick and place assembly, the MAAL-011141 delivers wideband performance for a broad range of applications, including test and measurement, EW, ECM and radar applications. (Photo: Business Wire).
This wideband LNA provides flat gain response across the whole band with typical gain of 17.5 dB. The input and output are fully matched to 50 Ω with typical return loss, across the band, of >15 dB. The MAAL-011141 enables ease of use by using positive gate bias, eliminating the need for a negative voltage supply. This amplifier employs an active termination circuit to achieve superior noise figure performance at the lower end of the frequency range.
“We are releasing this packaged version of the MAAL-011141 in response
to the tremendous market success of the bare-die format released earlier
this year. We believe that this packaged version will allow us to
service customers who use standard SMT manufacturing flows,” said
