The Big Deal
• Ultra wideband, 4 to 18 GHz
• Excellent noise figure, 2.5 dB at 15GHz
• Low Current, 48mA
• Usable up to 20 GHz
The PMA2-183LN+ is a E-PHEMT based wideband, low noise MMIC amplifier with an unique
combination of low noise, high IP3, and low current making it ideal for sensitive, high-dynamic-range
receiver applications. This design operates on a single 5V supply, is well matched for 50Ω and comes in
a tiny, low profile package (2 x 2 mm, 8 lead MCLP), accommodating dense circuit board layouts.
Excellent Noise Figure up to 18 GHz
• 2.7 dB typ. at 4 GHz
• 2.5 dB typ. at 18 GHz
Enables lower system noise figure performance.
• +31 dBm at 4 GHz
• +29.2 dBm at 20 GHz
Combination of low noise figure and high IP3 makes this MMIC amplifier ideal for use
in low noise receiver front end (RFE) as it gives the user advantages of sensitivity and
two-tone IM performance at both ends of the dynamic range.
Low operating voltage & current
5V & 48mA
Low voltage & current consumption is ideal for use in amplifier chain.
2 x 2mm 8-lead MCLP package
Tiny footprint saves space in dense layouts while providing low inductance, repeatable
transitions, and excellent thermal contact to the PCB.
