variable-gain amplifier

M/A-COM Techonology Solutions Inc. has unveiled the MAAM-011100 broadband variable-gain amplifier. The amplifier is fabricated using a GaAs process with full passivation. The device operates from 500MHz to 20GHz and provides flat gain control from 10dB to –20dB. Its 30dB gain range is controlled by a single control pin, and 50Ω match is maintained over all settings.

The general-purpose amplifier comes in a small 1.5×1.2mm TDFN plastic surface-mount package for use in a variety of applications, including WiFi, WiMAX, IMS, point-to-point, test and measurement, electronic warfare, aerospace, and defence. Typical P1dB power is 13dBm at maximum gain and reduces proportionally with gain. The amplifier is typically biased with a single 5V drain-voltage supply for standard operation over a frequency band of 4GHz to 20GHz. Current consumption is typically 50mA.

Datasheet for the MAAM-011100 variable-gain amplifier can be accessed here.
