MAAL-011111

M/A-COM (MACOM), a supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, has announced a new three-stage low noise amplifier for point to point applications.

The MAAL-011111 is a low-noise amplifier covering 22-38GHz in a small and low cost 3X3mm QFN package.  It offers 19dB of gain and less than 3dB of noise figure.  The LNA is self-biased requiring only a single 3.3V voltage supply and there is no need for any external components. 

It is designed to be easy to implement and takes up a small board area.  The high gain and low noise figure makes it well suited as a first stage LNA in receiver applications covering multiple bands simultaneously.

The low-noise amplifier has an integrated ESD protection and by-pass capacitors and requires a single positive bias supply, making it an ideal and easy-to-implement solution for a wide range of applications.

Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website.
