October 23, 2012 - Supplied in lead (Pb)-free, SMT package, MAAM-010373 exhibits gain of 22 dB and noise of 2.2 dB and is fabricated using pHEMT process that features full passivation. This GaAs MMIC amplifier, operating from 50–1,100 MHz, employs monolithic, single-stage design featuring 75 Ω I/O impedance that minimizes number of required external components. Gain figure with 20 dB output return loss make this product suited for multitap drop amplifier applications.

M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Inc.
100 Chelmsford Street
Lowell, MA, 01851

Press release date: October 16, 2012

Amplifier Exhibits Low Distortion, High Gain, and Low Noise Figure

Lowell, MA – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new broadband amplifier for CATV applications.

The MAAM-010373 is a GaAs MMIC amplifier that exhibits low distortion and high gain in a lead-free surface mount package. The amplifier employs a monolithic single stage design, featuring convenient 75Ω input/output impedance which minimizes the number of external components required.

The MAAM-010373 is fabricated using a pHEMT process to realize low noise and low distortion. The process features full passivation for robust performance and reliability. Operating between the 50 MHz -1100 MHz frequency range, the amplifier exhibits a high gain of 22dB and low noise figure of 2.2 dB.

“Delivering 22dB of gain with 20dB output return loss, the MAAM-010373 is ideally suited for multitap drop amplifier applications” said Graham Board, Product Manager.  “Customers are continuingly demanding more gain, improved linearity and reduced power dissipation. The MAAM-010373 delivers on all counts." 

The table below outlines typical performance:

Parameters Units MAAM-010373
Frequency dB 50 - 1100
Gain dB 22
Gain Flatness dB +/- 0.5
Noise Figure dB 2.2
Input Return Loss dB 18
Output Return Loss dB 20
Reverse Isolation dB 25
P1dB @403.25 MHz dBm 25
CSO dBc -62
CTB dBc -74
IDD mA 148
