Ultra-Wideband MMIC Amplifier, 0.5 to 15 GHz


Product Overview The PMA2-153LN+ is a PHEMT based wideband, low noise, flat gain MMIC amplifier with a unique combination of low noise, high IP3, and flat gain over wideband making it ideal for sensitive, high- dynamic-range receiver applications. This design operates on a single 5V or 6V supply, is well matched for 50 and comes in a tiny, low profile package (2 x 2 mm, 8 lead MCLP), accommodating dense circuit board layouts. Feature Advantages Low noise 2.2 dB at 2 GHz 2.6 dB at 8 GHz Enables lower system noise figure performance. High IP3 +27.7 dBm at 2 GHz +26.8 dBm at 8 GHz Combination of low noise and high IP3 makes this MMIC amplifier ideal for use in low noise receiver front end (RFE) as it gives the user advantages of sensitivity and two- tone IM performance at both ends of the dynamic range. Low operating voltage, 5V/6V. Achieves high IP3 using low voltage. 2 x 2mm 8-lead MCLP package Tiny footprint saves space in dense layouts while providing low inductance, repeatable transitions, and excellent thermal contact to the PCB. Wide bandwidth with flat gain ±0.1 dB over 0.5 to 2 GHz ±0.7 dB over 0.5 to 6 GHz ±1.2 dB over 0.5 to 8 GHz ±3.3 dB over 0.5 to 15 GHz Enables usage in applications without external gain flattening networks.
