Avago introduces MGA-633P8 GaAs MMIC LNA

Avago Technologies of San Jose, CA, USA and Singapore has introduced a new edition to its family of ultra low noise, high gain, high linearity GaAs active bias amplifiers for use in cellular infrastructure applications, the MGA-633P8.

According to the firm, the MGA-633P8 GaAs MMIC LNA provides ‘best in class’ performance in a compact footprint, and is designed to be used as a first stage LNA for cellular base station transceiver radio cards, tower mounted amplifiers, combiners, repeaters and remote/digital radio heads. Furthermore, it has a common printed circuit board layout, which is ideal for front-end applications used in cellular base stations. 

Based on Avago’s proprietary GaAs Enhancement-mode pHEMT process, the MGA-633P8 is housed in a 2mm x 2mm x 0.75mm 8-pin Quad-Flat-Non-Lead (QFN) package, and is designed to enable cellular applications that operate within the 450 to 2000MHz frequency range. 

Avago adds that the MGA-633P8 is an ideal choice for use in line terminal equipment, GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, CDMA2000 and TD-SCDMA cellular infrastructure applications.

Features include:

  • Ultra-low noise figure: 0.37 dB
  • 18 dB gain
  • Input return loss: 15dB
  • 37 dBm output IP3
  • 22 dBM output power at 1dB gain compression.
  • Tape-and-reel packaging option available
  • Pb-Free and RoHS compliant

Th MGA-633P8 LNA is priced at $2.31 each in 10,000 piece quantities, and is available now.
