RFIC Amplifier Improves Base Station Performance

Claiming to provide an industry-leading low noise figure and high linearity performance for cellular/PCS base stations and low-noise amplifier applications, the MGA-52543 radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) amplifier is said to improve the receiving performance of wireless base stations. The unit is also said to be extremely useful for amplifier and driver applications in base stations, wireless local loops, wireless local area networks, and other wireless communications applications calling for a low noise figure and high linearity throughout the 400 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range. Used as part of the low-noise amplifier (LNA), features of the RFIC include a typical noise figure of 1.9 dB, an associated gain of 14.2 dB, and a third-order intercept point of +17.5 dBm at 2 GHz. The unit is available in a four-lead SC-70 surface-mount plastic package and operates from a single supply of 5 V at 53 mA. Pricing is $1.52 each/25,000.
