MACOM’s New Low Noise Amplifier Operates from DC to 28 GHz

MACOM has released a new wideband low noise amplifier (LNA) optimized to provide low noise figure performance across the DC to 28 GHz frequency range.

The MAAL-011141 available in 5 mm industry standard AQFN packaging for pick and place assembly. It delivers wideband performance for a broad range of applications, including test and measurement, EW, ECM and radar applications.

This wideband LNA provides flat gain response across the whole band with typical gain of 17.5 dB. The input and output are fully matched to 50 Ω with typical return loss, across the band, of more than 15 dB. The MAAL-011141 enables ease of use by using positive gate bias, eliminating the need for a negative voltage supply. This amplifier employs an active termination circuit to achieve superior noise figure performance at the lower end of the frequency range.

MACOM’s MAAL-011141 LNAs are available to customers in bare-die and packaged formats. For assistance identifying MACOM products optimized to substitute or replace offerings from other vendors, visit MACOM’s Cross Reference tool.

MACOM is showcasing its leading RF technology portfolio at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2018. MACOM’s booth features new product solutions optimized for 5G, wireless basestations, radar, test and measurement, and industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) applications.
