Delivers 22.5 dBm P1dB and 16 dB Gain @ 2.4 GHz

April 30, 2008, Houston, Texas - Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces today a 3.3V InGaP HBT matched gain block amplifier that combines high linearity and gain with low thermal resistance. This versatile, multi-purpose amplifier, identified as CGB8002-SC, covers DC to 2.8 GHz frequency bands with 24.5 dBm of saturated power at 450 MHz, 15 dB of gain at 2.7 GHz, and an output third order intercept point of 37 dBm at 2.7 GHz.

Designed for 3.3V applications, this broadband, cascadable gain block amplifier is suitable for transmit, receive and IF applications, including 3G, fixed wireless broadband, WLAN, WiBro and WiMAX services. The amplifier is offered in an industry standard, RoHS compliant, SOT-89 package and includes ESD protection, significantly enhancing quality, reliability and ruggedness.

"The CGB8002-SC compliments our CGB product family and offers customers a highly linear 3.3V gain block solution," stated Amer Droubi, Product Manager, Mimix Broadband, Inc. "The exceptionally low thermal resistance (35 °C/W) and the more than 4000V HBM (Human Body Model) ESD rating make the CGB8002-SC an ideal combination of low operating voltage, superior performance, high reliability and low cost."

Engineering samples and small production quantities are available today from stock. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.988.4600. The CGB8002-SC datasheet and additional product information can be obtained from the Mimix Broadband website at
