Ultra Low Noise MMIC Amplifier

50Ω 0.05 to 6 GHz The Big Deal

PMA-5452+

• Ultra Low Noise Figure, 0.6 dB • High IP3/Low Current, 40mA • Wideband, up to 6 GHz

3mm x 3mm MCLP (EIA: QFN) Pkg

Product Overview

Mini-Circuits PMA-5452+ is a E-PHEMT based Ultra-Low Noise MMIC Amplifier operating from 50 MHz to 6 GHz with a unique combination of low noise and high IP3 making this amplifier ideal for sensitive receiver applications. This design operates on a single 3V supply at only 40mA and is internally matched to 50 Ohms.

Key Features
Feature
Ultra Low Noise, 0.6dB

Advantages
Outstanding Noise Figure, measured in a 50 Ohm environment without any external matching Combining Low Noise and High IP3 makes this MMIC amplifier ideal for Low Noise Receiver Front End (RFE) because it gives the user advantages at both ends of the dynamic range: sensitivity & two-tone spur-free dynamic range At only 40mA, the PMA-5452+ is ideal for remote applications with limited available power or densely packed applications where thermal management is critical. Operating over a broadband the PMA-5452+ covers the primary wireless communications bands: Cellular, PCS, LTE, WiMAX No external matching elements required to achieve the advertised noise and output power over the full band Low Inductance, repeatable transitions, excellent thermal pad Ruggedized design operates up to input powers of +20dBm without the need of an external limiter Low, small signal operating current of 40 mA nominal maintains junction temperatures typically below 105°C at 85°C ground lead temperature

High IP3, 32 dBm

Low Current, 40 mA Broad Band Internally Matched MCLP Package Max Input Power, +20 dBm High Reliability
