Macom Launches Low Noise Amplifier

June 23, 2014

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings (Macom) has introduced a new low noise, high gain amplifier for wireless infrastructure, WiFi and L- and S- Band applications.

Macom said in a release that MAAL-011078 is a low noise amplifier that offers ultra-low noise figure and high gain from a single stage.

The company noted that the Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) covers wide bandwidth between 700MHz and 6GHz with 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."

Production quantities and samples of MAAL-011078 are available from stock.

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings is a supplier of high performance analog RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products that enable next-generation Internet and modern battlefield applications.
