The A-115 is a single stage square wave buffer amplifier that operates from 1 GHz to 15 GHz. It provides a small signal gain of 13 dBm, saturated output power up to 20 dBm and has a 3.5 dB noise figure. The amplifier requires a +5 V and -0.7V bias voltage. It has been designed to be operated at high power in saturation mode at a single frequency, making it an excellent general purpose LO driver amplifier. It can also be overdriven to create a square-wave that will optimize the linearity performance of mixers. The A-115 is available in a surface mount package or a connectorized package.
