5 Amplifier Families: Basic Characteristics
By Ashraf Elghamrawi, Analog Devices, Inc.
The amplifier is one of the most versatile building blocks used in RF/IF signal chains today. Throughout a transceiver RF amplifiers are required to increase signal strength. In the receiver these devices amplify faint incoming signals, and in the transmitter they increase signal strength as it approaches the final power amplifier stages. Since these losses occur across the RF/IF signal chain, Analog Devices has developed five families of amplifiers tailored to the needs of each particular radio section.

Quickly Evaluate High-Performance Oscillators
Oscillator manufacturers and engineers who frequently need to evaluate the performance of ultra-low phase noise oscillators, at some point, recognize that their phase noise test systems could be primarily improved in three aspects.

Datasheet: Ultra-Low Phase Noise OCVCXO
The Apollo Series from the Olympian OCVCXO Family is a high frequency range product specifically designed for applications requiring superior noise performance out to a 100-KHz offset. It is ideal for phase-locked microwave signal sources such as DROs, low noise test equipment, microwave com-systems, and radar applications.

Datasheet: 750-kHz To 800-MHz TCXO
This TCXO has a wide 750-kHz to 800-MHz frequency range. It is a Hi-Rel TCXO that features reduced acceleration sensitivity to 5 x 10-10/g and long-term stability performance.
