ADI-ADL5324-PR-PhotoRichardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new ½ W RF driver amplifier from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI). The ADL5324 incorporates a dynamically-adjustable biasing circuit that allows for the customization of OIP3 and P1dB performance from 3.3 V to 5 V, without the need for an external bias resistor. This versatile feature creates the opportunity for dynamic biasing of the device where a variable supply is used to allow for full 5 V biasing under large signal conditions, and then reduced supply voltage when signal levels are smaller and lower power consumption is desirable.

The ADL5324 is rated to operate across a wide temperature range (−40°C to +105°C), covers a wide frequency range (400 MHz to 4000 MHz), and requires few external components to be tuned to a specific band within that wide range. This high performance broadband RF driver amplifier is well suited for a variety of wired and wireless applications, including cellular infrastructure, ISM band power amplifiers, defense equipment, and instrumentation equipment. A fully populated evaluation board is available.

Additional key features of the ADL5324 include:

  • Gain of 14.6 dB at 2140 MHz
  • OIP3 of 43.1 dBm at 2140 MHz
  • P1dB of 29.1 dBm at 2140 MHz
  • Noise figure of 3.8 dB
  • SOT-89 package, MSL-1 rated
  • ESD rating of ±3 kV (Class 2)

The device is part of ADI's Select Products for Q3, 2012.

Common configurations are in stock and available for immediate delivery.

The device is available by calling 1-800-737-6937 (within North America); or please find your local sales engineer (worldwide) at Local Sales Support.
