The AM003536WM-QN5-R from Amcom Communications is an MMIC Power Amplifier that operates from 0.01 to 3.5 GHz. It delivers a saturated output power of more than 34 dBm (~2.5 W) with a gain of 22 dB. The amplifier requires a supply voltage of 24 V and is input/output matched to 50 ohms. It is available in a QFN package that measures 5 x 5 mm with coplanar RF, ground, and DC connections at the bottom of the package. The amplifier has relatively high DC power dissipation, making it necessary to mount the MMIC ground directly on multiple vias to dissipate heat and for a good RF ground connection. It is ideal for use in gain blocks, software radios, and instrumentation applications.
