MicroWave Technology, Inc. (MwT), a division of IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS) , announced that it now offers a family of four low noise amplifier products on open-carrier modules with excellent noise figure performance over wide frequency ranges.

MwT-0204S/Z-LN600 has noise figure as low as 0.8dB with 16dB gain and 18dBm P1dB across 2 to 4GHz. MwT-0307S/Z-LN600 operates from 3 to 7GHz and has excellent noise figure of 1.2dB with 12dB gain and 16 dBm P1dB. MwT-0513S/Z-LN300 delivers 1.5 dB noise figure with 13 dB gain and 16 dB P1dB between 5 and 13 GHz. MwT-0718S/Z-LN300 can operate from 7 through 18GHz having noise figure of 1.9 dB with 11 dB gain and 16 dBm P1dB. All the modules have excellent input and output matches of better than 1.5:1 VSWR. These open-carrier modules also have good gain flatness and variation over temperature across the frequency bands.

“These open-carrier modules are built with MwT advanced AlGaAs/GaAs low noise pHEMT devices, MwT-LN3400 or MwT-LN600. Using balanced amplifier configurations, they can deliver excellent low noise and gain performances with ample linear power output together with excellent input and output matches across wide frequency ranges,” Dr. Greg Zhou, the General Manager of Microwave Technology Inc. comments. “The open-carrier module approach provides easy to use building blocks for various military microwave and commercial wireless amplification applications. The technique will also allow flexibility in tuning and optimizing the modules to achieve demanding performance targeted at specific bands within the frequency ranges.”
