This two-stage design makes use of enhancement-mode pHEMT device technology to serve IEEE 802.11a, HiperLAN2, and HiSWANa local-area-network receivers.
These lines of efficient, high-power amplifiers cover frequency ranges as broad as 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz in support of emerging broadband-communications applications.
Transmission-line transformers can provide reliable interfaces between different impedances for broadband applications in RF, wireless, and optical systems.
One goal of cascading amplifier stages is to achieve higher levels of gain without sacrificing gain flatness across the design bandwidth of interest.
These building-block circuit elements have improved in stability and versatility over time, with a wide range of package styles available from a long list of suppliers.
These inexpensive components target the needs of the many commercial applications in which cost as well as performance is a critical issue.
