Wideband, Microwave Monolithic Amplifier
50в„¦ AVA-183A+ 5 to 18 GHz The Big Deal Surface Mount Amplifier up to 18 GHz Integrated matching, DC Blocks and bias circuits Superior Value CASE STYLE: DQ849 Product Overview The AVA-183A+ is a surface mount, microwave amplifier fabricated using InGaAs PHEMT technology and
is a fully integrated gain block up to 18 GHz. It is packaged in Mini-Circuits industry standard 3x3 mm
MCLP package, which provides excellent RF and thermal performance. The AVA-183A+ integrates the
entire matching network with the majority of the bias circuit inside the package, reducing the need for
complicated external circuits. This approach makes the AVA-183A+ extremely flexible and enables simple,
straightforward use. Key Features
Feature Advantages Wideband, 5 to 18 GHz Broad frequency range supports a wide array of applications from microwave radio and radar , to
military communications and countermeasures. Excellent Gain Flatness Typical В±1.2 dB gain flatness across the entire frequency range minimizes the need for external
equalizer networks making it a great fit for instrumentation and EW applications. High Isolation With reverse isolation of 31-42 dB (17-23 dB directivity), the AVA-183A+ is an excellent choice for
buffering broadband circuits. It is an ideal LO driver amplifier and provides designers system flexibility and margin when integrating cascaded RF components. Single +5V Supply No hassle associated with amplifiers using dual supply; such as power supply sequencing. Integrated output bias-tee, simplifies layout & reduces cost. Manufacturability MSL1 and ESD Class1A (HBM) ratings minimize special handling on production lines. Notes
