The MAAL-011111 is a low noise amplifier covering 22 - 38GHz in a small and
low cost 3X3 mm QFN package. It offers 19dB of gain and less than 3dB of noise
figure. The LNA is self-biased requiring only a single 3.3V voltage supply and
there is no need for any external components. It is easy to implement and
takes up a small board area. The high gain and low noise figure makes it well
suited as a first stage LNA in receiver applications covering multiple bands

“The MAAL-011111 offers excellent performance across the full band up to 38GHz
in a small fully molded QFN package,” said Amer Droubi, Product Manager,
MACOM. “The low noise amplifier has an integrated ESD protection and by-pass
capacitors and requires a single positive bias supply, making it an idea low
cost and easy to implement solution for a wide range of applications.”

The table below outlines typical performance:

Parameter            Units   MAAL-011111
Frequency            GHz     22-38
Small Signal Gain    dB      19
Input Return Loss    dB      10
Output Return Loss   dB      13
Noise Figure         dB      2.5
Supply Current       mA      55

Production quantities and samples of MAAL-011111 are available from stock.
