High Dynamic Range MMIC Amplifier, 0.7 to 2.4 GHz


Product Overview The HXG-242-4+ (RoHS compliant) is an advanced amplifier module combining high dynamic range MMIC technology and optimization circuits to provide industry leading linearity over a focused frequency range. It is packaged in a Mini-Circuits System in Package (MSiP) module (6.4mm x 7.0mm x 2.4mm) using a sealed ceramic cover and having gold over Ni for excellent solderability. Feature Advantages Optimized Frequency Range Covering primary wireless communications bands: Cellular, PCS, LTE Extremely High IP3 vs. Current 46.6 dBm typ at 1500 MHz versus DC Power Consumption of 146mA The HXG-242-4+ offers industry leading IP3 performance relative to device size and power consumption. The combination of the design and E-PHEMT provides enhanced linearity as evidence in the IP3. This feature makes this amplifier ideal for use in: Driver amplifiers for complex waveform up converter paths Drivers in linearized transmit systems Secondary amplifiers in ultra High Dynamic range receivers No External Matching Components Required Unlike competing products, Mini-Circuits HXG-242-4+ provides Input and Output Return Loss of 10 dB up to 1.5 GHz without the need for any external matching components Low Noise Figure: 2.4dB typ. A unique feature of the HXG-242-4+ which separates this design from all competitors is the low noise figure performance in combination with the high dynamic range.


• Ultra High IP3, +46 dBm typ. at 1.5 GHz • Gain, 14.3 dB typ. at 2 GHz • High Pout, P1dB +23 dBm typ. • Low noise figure, 2.4 dB • Internally matched for optimized IP3 performance • No external matching components required
