Sirenza Microdevices has introduced SXE-1089Z, a high performance pHEMT MMIC gain block, utilising a patented active self-bias Darlington topology. The active bias network provides stable current over temperature and process threshold voltage variations.
The SXE-1089Z’s broadband internal match eliminates the need for off-chip tuning components. These two key design features result in consistent performance over process, temperature and assembly variations.
The SXE-1089Z is an ideal solution for high dynamic range, medium-power amplifiers in IF, cellular, PCS, W-CDMA, fixed wireless systems. The SXE-1089Z’s RF performance and consistency, low cost and ease of use are its major advantages.
The SXE-1089Z is available from Caelera.
