Keywords:CATV? amplifier? BGA3018? BiCMOS?

The BGA3018 customer evaluation board allows the user to evaluate the performance of the wideband CATV MMIC amplifier BGA3018.

The BGA3018 performance information is available in the BGA3018 datasheet.

This application note describes the evaluation board schematic and layout requirements for using the BGA3018 as a CATV return path amplifier between 5MHz and 300MHz. The BGA3018 is fabricated in the BiCMOS process and packaged in a lead-free 3-pin SOT89 package. The BGA3018 is surface-mounted on an evaluation board with element matching and DC decoupling circuitry. The amplifier MMIC comprises a two stage amplifier with internal bias network and operates over a frequency range of 5MHz to 1003MHz with a supply voltage between 5 V and 8 V.
