Ultra Low Noise, High IP3 Monolithic Amplifier
The Mini-Circuits PMA2-162LN+ is an ultra low noise MMIC amplifier covering 0.7 to 1.6 GHz with a unique combination of low noise and high IP3 making it ideal for sensitive receiver applications. The design operates on a single 4 V supply and is internally matched to 50 ohms. It offers high dynamic range in addition to good input and output return loss without the need for external components. It is packaged in a 2 × 2 × 0.55 mm (MCLP) leadless surface- mount package with very good thermal performance.
The PMA2-162LN+ has a low noise figure of 0.5 dB and high IP3 of 30 dBm typical at 1 GHz. The gain is 22.7 dB typical and output power P1dB of 20 dBm typical at 1 GHz. The operating temperature is -40° to +85°C with high reliability due to the low, small-signal operating current of 80 mA nominal, which maintains the junction temperatures typically below 100°C at a ground lead temperature of 85°C. It has a Class 1B HBM ESD rating (500 V). Typical applications include base station infrastructure, portable wireless, LTE, GPS, GSM and airborne radar.
