Tyco Electronics introduced the M/A-COM MAAM-007095-A3GVSA low noise amplifier (LNA), a new two-stage variable gain amplifier that is well suited for use in military and space radar, tactical communications systems and commercial point-to-point radio applications. Featuring a variable gain control of 0 to +5 VDC and 25 to 38-dB gain, the amplifier can be used as a LNA, intermediate amplifier, or driver stage amplifier. Typical noise figure is 2 dB with a 1-dB compression point of 17 dB.
The M/A-COM MAAM-007095-A3GVSA amplifier requires a +12 to +15VDC power supply, and can be mounted in either a connectorized or drop-in configuration. The amplifier is in a hermitically sealed housing and can accommodate either field-replaceable SMA or GPO connectors. Matched to 50 ohms on both input and output, it is fabricated using high-performance, high-reliability military standard processes. Click here for more information or visit www.macom.com .
