Atlanta Micro’s AM1018 is a cascadable gain block amplifier with 13 dB gain, a 2.5 dB noise figure, +35 dBm OIP3, +18/+21 dBm P1db, a 3.3V, 84 mA/+5.0V, 106 mA supply, a -40C to +85C operating temperature, and unconditional stability. It’s operational to +1.7V and comes in a 3mm QFN package.
Guerrilla RF Inc. offers two new models of high linearity gain block amplifiers featuring a combination of simple-application schematics, flat gain, and high compressed output power with operation in the DC to 4 GHz frequency range. The GRF2012 and GRF 2013 models include flexible biasing for high levels of re-use within single designs and multiple platforms. They are ideally used as cost-effective pre-drivers for broadband GaN high power amplifiers, and for many other general purpose, high performance gain block applications.
This gain block amplifier covers the 20 MHz to 8 GHz frequency range. It exhibits flat gain (19 dB), a 2.5 dB noise figure, and unconditional stability over the -40C to +85C operating temperature range. It comes in a 3mm QFN package and is operational to 1.7V.
