Mimix launches 2.8GHz 3.3V matched gain block amplifier in SOT-89 package

Mimix Broadband Inc of Houston, TX, USA has made available engineering samples and small production quantities of a 3.3V InGaP HBT matched gain block amplifier that combines high linearity and gain with low thermal resistance. The versatile CGB8002-SC multi-purpose amplifier covers DC to 2.8GHz frequency bands with 24.5dBm of saturated power at 450MHz, 15dB of gain at 2.7GHz, and an output third-order intercept point of 37dBm at 2.7GHz.

Designed for 3.3V applications, the broadband, cascadable gain block amplifier is suitable for transmit, receive and IF applications, including 3G, fixed-wireless broadband, WLAN, WiBro and WiMAX services. The amplifier is offered in an industry-standard, RoHS-compliant, SOT-89 package and includes ESD protection, significantly enhancing quality, reliability and ruggedness, the firm claims.

“The CGB8002-SC compliments our CGB product family and offers customers a highly linear 3.3V gain block solution,” says product manager Amer Droubi. “The exceptionally low thermal resistance (35°C/W) and the more than 4000V HBM (human body model) ESD rating make the CGB8002-SC an ideal combination of low operating voltage, superior performance, high reliability and low cost,” he adds.
