The A-126 is a single stage square wave buffer amplifier that operates from 1 GHz to 26 GHz. It requires a negative control voltage (of -0.7 V or -5V) and a positive bias voltage of 5 V. The amplifier provides a small signal gain of 13 dBm, saturated output power up to 20 dBm, noise figure of 3.5 dB. The amplifier has been designed to be operated at high power in saturation mode at a single frequency, making it excellent general purpose LO driver amplifiers. It can also be overdriven to create a square-wave that will optimize the linearity performance of mixers. It is available in a surface mount package or a connectorized package.
