The MAAM-011100 is designed for customers who need a versatile, broadband, low cost and ultra-small variable gain amplifier solution for WiFi, WiMax, IMS, Point to Point, Test & Measurement, Electronic Warfare and Aerospace and Defense applications. The MAAM-011100 is packaged in a convenient plastic 1.5x1.2 TDFN while still providing superior broadband performance over competing alternatives. The single gain control pin and ultra-small size provides real estate constrained customers with an easy, low cost solution for a variety of applications.

“The MAAM-011100 offers an excellent combination of broadband performance, ease of use and low cost,” said Tom Galluccio, Product Manager. “The device is ideal for customers looking for cost and space savings to implement into their solutions.”

The MAAM-011100 is fabricated using a GaAs process which features full passivation for increased performance and reliability. The amplifier boasts a typical gain control range of 30dB with +13dBm of P1dB performance. The input and output are fully matched to 50Ω with a typical return loss of -12dB. The device is typically biased with a single +5V Vd for standard operation over the 4GHz – 20GHz frequency band; providing customers with an excellent multipurpose solution.

The table below outlines typical performance:
