M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. has announced the release of an analog control variable gain amplifier (VGA) for Cellular Infrastructure applications. The MAAM-009320 is designed to lower bill of materials (BOM) cost and complexity for OEM engineers who are designing next generation 3G/4G/LTE base stations.

New base station designs have multi-band capabilities, but numerous space constraints. The MAAM-009320 delivers higher levels of integration and space savings by performing three circuit functions in a single 4mm PQFN package. The MAAM-009320 has a wide frequency range complimented by high gain of 25.5dB and excellent input and output return loss.

The MAAM-009320 has 3.0dB noise figure and an attenuation range of 26.5dB with an OIP3 of 42dBm. Packaged in a RoHS compliant 4mm, 24-Lead PQFN package, the VGA is designed for operation from 400C2700MHz. External matching components are used to set the center frequency and achieve return loss performance while analog control is accomplished through a single control pin of 0C3V.
