March 26, 2008, Houston, Texas - Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces today a GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier (LNA) offered in an RoHS compliant, standard 3x3-millimeter QFN plastic package, covering 20 to 38 GHz. This LNA, identified as XL1010-QT, delivers 3 dB noise figure and 17 dB small signal gain and is well suited for multiple receiver applications that require broadband performance with simple bias requirements. The XL1010-QT also includes on-chip ESD protection structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease implementation and volume assembly.

"The XL1010-QT is unique because it offers high frequency, broadband performance in a fully molded QFN package," stated Paul Beasly, Product Manager of Mimix Broadband, Inc. "The device is also fully matched and requires only a single, positive bias supply, making it an ideal low-cost solution for a wide-range of applications."

Mimix performs 100% RF testing on the XL1010-QT. Samples are available today from stock, along with production quantities in six to eight weeks. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.988.4600. The datasheet and additional product information can be obtained from the Mimix Broadband website at
