The MGA-21108 offers a very low noise figure and high linearity performance which helps to significantly improve the sensitivity and dynamic range of the mobile receivers. Additionally, the fully matched LNA module will enable designers of wireless handsets and other hand-held communications devices to simplify their designs and help reduce their design time to market. Overall, this new LNA from Avago will allow designers to develop smaller or more compact wireless mobile communications devices.
Broadband performance of Avago’s MGA-21108 is achieved with only one external input matching component, and the power supply chokes and coupling capacitors are integrated into the device. Additionally, the MGA-21108 includes a CMOS-compatible shutdown pin that can also be used as a variable gain bias pin.
Avago will be demonstrating a variety of its latest amplifiers at the 2009 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, which will be held in Boston, MA, June 8 to 11, at the Boston Convention Center and Exhibition Center (Booth #1215).
