The MAAM-011112 from MACOM is a 4-Stage Buffer Amplifier that operates from 20 to 37 GHz. It provides a gain of 24 dB, has a noise figure of less than 6.5 dB and a P1dB of over 18 dBm. The amplifier requires a supply voltage of 4 V and draws less than 400 mA of current. It is internally matched to 50 ohms and the input and output are DC blocked.
The MAAM-011112 is available in a 16-lead PQFN package that measures 3 x 3 mm and is suitable for applications including buffer amplifiers in LO chains and driver amplifiers in transmit line-ups for Point-to-Point and Point-to Multipoint communication systems. It also features low lead inductance and an excellent thermal path.
