The advanced device is an LNA with an integrated bypass switch. The on-chip bypass switch improves the dynamic range, with low insertion loss, for receiver designs. In addition to providing improved performance, the integrated bypass switch helps conserve board space and reduce system and manufacturing costs. This device also includes high gain, high input IP3, low noise figure, selectable current settings, and a standby mode to turn the device completely off. Input and output matching is performed externally to allow maximum design flexibility.
The IC can operate from 400 to 2400 MHz. Applications include PCS 1900 MHz cellular telephones as well as 900 and 2400 MHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) Band designs.
The MBC13720 is packaged in an ultra-small SOT-363 surface mount package and is available in tape and reel.
