The MAAM-011305 is a broadband, low noise, highdynamic range, single stage MMIC gain blockassembled in a lead-free 2 mm 8-LD PDFN plasticpackage. The amplifier is internally matched toprovide flat gain and good return losses to 8 GHzwithout any external matching components. Use ofexternal matching could extend usable frequencyrange beyond 8 GHz.
This amplifier has an integrated active bias circuitallowing direct connection to 3 V or 5 V bias andminimizing variations over temperature and process.The bias current can be set by an optional externalresistor, so the user can customize the powerconsumption to fit the application. VBIAS can beutilized as an enable pin to power the device up anddown during operation.
