Covering the frequency range of 1 to 18 GHz, the AMX/0118-3026 low-noise amplifier (LNA) serves a variety of RF and microwave applications. This compact LNA typically offers noise figures of less than 2.5 dB over an instantaneous bandwidth of more than four octaves from 1 through 18 GHz. It is based on gallium-arsenide (GaAs) pHEMT technology with input and output impedance matching. The amplifier is available as a drop-in package or with SMA connectors. In addition, the LNA's "automationfriendly" design increases consistency of performance, making design-in more cost effective for system designers and manufacturers. The amplifier is geared toward radar imaging, spread-spectrum communications, and a myriad of ultra-wideband applications including the related instrumentation for each one.
