Celeritek's CGB7010-BD is a Darlington Configured, high dynamic range, utility gain block amplifier MMIC chip. Designed for applications operating between 0.1 and 6 GHz, Celeritek's broadband, cascadable, gain block amplifiers are ideal solutions for transmit, receive and IF applications. It is matched to 50-W impedance for both input and output. It is available in chip form. The InGaP HBT die has extra pads to enable thorough DC testing. With a single bypass capacitor, optional RF choke and two DC blocking capacitors, this gain block amplifier offers significant ease of use in a broad range of applications.
