MACOM Introduces Low Noise, High Gain Amplifier for Multi-Market Applications

Ultra-small packaged amplifier is ideal for space constrained customers looking for frequency coverage up to 6 GHz

LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 18, 2014 — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, today announced a new low noise, high gain amplifier for wireless infrastructure, WiFi and L- and S- Band applications.

MAAL-011078 is a low noise amplifier that offers ultra-low noise figure and high gain from a single stage. The Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) covers wide bandwidth between 700MHz and 6GHz with excellent noise figure, OIP3 and gain. The return loss can be optimized over narrow bands by implementing simple external matching networks. The integrated active bias circuit allows direct connection to 3V or 5V voltage supply and minimizes variations over temperature and process. The bias circuit voltage supply (VBIAS) can be utilized as an enable pin to power the device up and down during operation.

“This LNA is a designed as a second generation of MAAL-011076 and MAAL-011075. It is designed using very low noise process and has more gain and bandwidth than any other LNA in the market,” said Amer Droubi, Product Manager, MACOM. “Matching is done externally in order to enable customers to make the necessary compromise between return loss, gain, OIP and noise figure.”

The table below outlines typical performance:

Parameter     Units     1.9GHz     2.6GHz     3.5GHz     5.8GHz
Noise Figure     dB     0.35     0.5     0.6     1.0
Gain     dB     23     22     19     14.5
OIP3     dBm     33     33     33     30
P1dB     dBm     21     21     21     19
