Low-Noise Amplifier Spans DC to 17 GHz (.PDF Download)

Feb. 28, 2017

Low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) are essential for receiving low-level communications signals, although such amplifiers are typically not broadband in their frequency coverage. However, an innovative LNA design approach blends low- and high-frequency circuit design techniques to achieve low noise from dc to 17 GHz. The amplifier, based on enhancement-mode, pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility-transistor (E-pHEMT) semiconductor technology, achieves low 1/f noise with low harmonic distortion and relatively flat gain across its wide frequency range...
