Tiny Amp Offers Flat Gain To 6 GHz

Based on heterojunction-bipolar-transistor (HBT) technology, model CMA-62+ is an extremely broadband amplifier, with flat gain of 15 dB (typically 15.4 dB at 2 GHz) across a frequency range of 10 MHz to 6 GHz. The gain remains flat within 0.7 dB from 50 to 4000 MHz. The RoHS-compliant monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) amplifier is bonded to a multilayer integrated low-temperature-cofired-ceramic (LTCC) substrate for outstanding thermal stability, then hermetically sealed in a miniature surface-mount package. The rugged amplifier delivers +19.8 dBm typical output power at 1-dB compression at 2 GHz, and provides excellent linearity, with a typical third-order intercept point of +37.8 dBm at 50 MHz and +33.6 dBm at 2 GHz. It is Class 1C rated in terms of electrostatic-discharge (ESD) protection per the human body model (HBM). Ideal for cellular base stations, cable television (CATV), and portable wireless applications, the amplifier has a noise figure of typically 5.2 dB at 1 GHz and 5.5 dB at 6 GHz. It typically draws 82 mA from a +5-VDC supply and does not require any external matching components.
