The AP-10 is a broadband distributed amplifier that operates from 0.005 GHz to 10 GHz. It is a distributed MMIC amplifier with positive only bias circuitry to provide resonance free gain with high saturated output power. The amplifier provides a small signal gain of 14 dBm, saturated output power up to 23 dBm, reverse isolation of 45 dB and return loss of 15 dB. It can be used for generation of square wave LO drives for T3 mixers (in saturation mode), general purpose LO drive signal generation or as a general purpose gain block for lab use (in linear mode). It is available as a connectorized module or in a surface mount package.
