The LVA-123+ from Mini-circuits is an ultra-wideband amplifier that operates from 0.01 to 12 GHz. It has a gain of 17.3 dB, gain flatness of ±0.6 dB, P1dB of +15.6 dBm and an input return loss of 20 dB. The amplifier is internally matched to 50 ohms so does not need external matching components saving board space and simplifying circuit design. This amplifier can be used in base station infrastructure, test instruments, LTE, satellite communication and avionics. It is available in a 3x3 mm 8-lead package with very good thermal performance.
