Sunnyvale, Calif. - Two silicon germanium HBT amplifiers from Stanford Microdevices Inc. are optimized for the 800- to 1,000-MHz and 1,900- to 2,400-MHz communication bands, and designed for use in second- and third-generation wireless infrastructure and fixed-wireless applications. The SGL-0163 has a noise figure of 1.2 dB, a 5-dBm-input third-order intercept point and a small-signal gain of 16 dB. In lots of 10,000, it's priced at 50 cents each. The SGL-0263 has a noise figure of 1.3 dB, a 6-dBm-input third-order intercept point and a small-signal gain of 15 dB. It's priced at 95 cents. Both MMIC devices come in SOT-363 plastic packages.
