Richardson RFPD, Inc announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a GaAs MMIC amplifier from Analog Devices, Inc.
The ADL8150 is a self-biased GaAs MMIC, heterojunction bipolar transistor, low phase noise amplifier that operates from 6 GHz to 14 GHz. The amplifier has low phase noise of -172 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and provides 12 dB of typical signal gain and +30 dBm typical output third-order intercept.
The amplifier requires 74 mA from a 5 V collector supply voltage. The ADL8150 also features inputs and outputs that are internally matched to 50 Ω, facilitating integration into multichip modules.
The ADL8150 is versatile for a range of applications, including military and space, test instrumentation and communications.
