MACOM's MAAM28000-A1 is a wide band, MMIC amplifier housed in a small, lead-free, 8-lead ceramic package. It includes two distributed gain stages to obtain flat gain and a good, 50-ohm input and output impedance match over a very wide bandwidth. The MAAM28000-A1 operates from a single +10 V supply. It is fully monolithic, requires no external components and is provided in a lowcost, user-friendly, microwave package. The MAAM28000-A1 performs well as a generic IF, driver or buffer amplifier where high gain, excellent linearity and low power consumption are important. Because of its wide bandwidth, the MAAM28000-A1 can be used in numerous commercial and government system applications, such as satellite communications, RLL, EW and radar. The MAAM28000-A1 is manufactured in-house using a reliable, 0.5-micron, GaAs MESFET process. This product is 100% RF tested to ensure compliance to performance specifications.
