LNAs Boost Bands from 700 to 2700 MHz

April 24, 2015
A line of low-noise amplifiers provides high gain from 700 to 2700 MHz.

The LNA1 Series of low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) covers telecommunications frequency bands from 700 to 2700 MHz. The offer 0-dBm output power at 1-dB compression with 25-dB small-signal gain and ± 3-dB gain flatness. The compact amplifiers are well suited for portable applications, drawing 100 mA from a +5-VDC supply, enabling them to be powered by a USB computer port. As an example, model LNA1-0727-25 operates from 700 to 2700 MHz with 2-dB noise figure (typically 1.5 dB) and 25-dB gain. It measures 1.5 in. × 1.0 in. × 2.5 in. (38 mm × 25 mm × 64 mm) and is supplied with Type-N input and output connectors; other connectors are available upon request. The LNAs are designed for operating temperatures from -10° C to +50° C.
