OMMIC Launches High Linearity Dual LNAs

June 23, 2008

OMMIC announced the introduction of two new high linearity dual low noise amplifiers (LNA) for the wireless infrastructure and base station market to its product catalog. These devices are compatible with numerous standards, including GSM, PCS, CDMA and W-CDMA.


The CGY2105XHV and CGY2106XHV are high performing LNAs. The CGY2105XHV exhibits a single ended noise figure of 0.27 dB and a noise figure of 0.42 dB and output IP3 of 35 dBm with 19 dB of gain at 1.9 GHz when used in a balanced configuration with on board SMD couplers (including the connector, coupler and matching losses). Similarly the CGY2106XHV exhibits a single ended noise figure of 0.29 dB and a noise figure of 0.44 dB and output IP3 of 36.5 dBm with 19 dB of gain at 900 MHz when used in a balanced configuration with on board SMD couplers (including the connector, coupler and matching losses).

The devices are packaged in plastic QFN packages and use OMMIC's fully released 0.13 μm PHEMT technology. The excellent tracking between each of the LNAs on the MMIC ensures an excellent S11 and S22 when used in a balanced configuration.
