Atlanta Micro announces the product release of a high dynamic range bypassable DC-coupled amplifier covering up to 8 GHz, part number AM1081-2.  The device has low bypass insertion loss and a moderate positive gain-slope, providing frequency equalization useful in many broadband applications.  Packaged in a 3mm QFN or a shielded module with internal 50Ω matching and requiring a single positive control voltage, the AM1081-2 represents a dramatic size reduction over a discrete implementation of a bypassable amplifier.
