Richardson RFPD announces gallium arsenide MMIC amplifier availability

The availability and full design support capabilities for a gallium arsenide MMIC amplifier from Analog Devices have been announced by Richardson RFPD.

The ADL8150 is a self-biased GaAs MMIC, heterojunction bipolar transistor, low phase noise amplifier that operates from 6 GHz to 14 GHz. The amplifier has low phase noise of -172 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and provides 12 dB of typical signal gain and +30 dBm typical output third-order intercept.

The amplifier requires 74 mA from a 5 V collector supply voltage. The ADL8150 also features inputs and outputs that are internally matched to 50-Ohm, helping integration into multichip modules.

The ADL8150 suits a range of applications, including military and space, test instrumentation, and communications.

Richardson RFPD, an Arrow Electronics company, is a global leader in the RF, wireless, Internet of Things and power technologies markets and has forged partnerships with some of the industry’s top radio frequency and power component suppliers. Its design centres worldwide and technical sales team provide comprehensive support for customers’ go-to-market strategy, from prototype to production.
