TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. has released four low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that are designed to eliminate matching components for a wide range of high-performance broadband applications, including 3G/4G base station networks, mobile network base stations, repeaters, point-to-point radios, test and other high-performance applications.
Optimized for linearity, TriQuint’s new low noise amplifiers are available in cost-effective standard surface-mount packages. They are cascadable 50 Ohm LNAs that consume 50 mA of electrical current and offer gain options from 15-19 dB. They all operate on a single positive power supply (3V to 5V). See specifics in the datasheet links below.
Samples and evaluation boards are available. Contact TriQuint for product details or go to www.triquint.com/sales to locate a sales representative or distributor closest to you.
