Low Noise Amplifiers


The MwT-0618S-H5G2 and the MwT-0618Z-H5G2 are low noise, high gain open-carrier amplifier modules operating between 6 and 18 GHz. Their input and output ports are matched to 50 O impedance.

Northrop Grumman Microelectronics Products & Services’ latest entry in their series of W-band products include two new InP HEMT low noise amplifiers covering the 71-96 and 80-100 GHz frequency ranges. Both amplifiers are ideal for applications involving W-band imaging, sensors, radar, and short haul/high capacity links.

Guerrilla RF offers the GRF2073-W linear, ultra-low noise amplifier designed for automotive satellite radio multi-stage LNAs, signal booster and GPS applications. With its ultra-low noise and high gain characteristics, this amplifier is an ideal first-stage LNA solution for high-performance, multi-stage SDARS LNA designs. With superior performance, it offers a drop-in alternative to legacy SDARS LNA solutions.

This low noise amplifier (LNA) operates in the 80-105 GHz frequency range and features 16 dB linear gain, a 5 dB noise figure from 80 to 90 GHz, a 3.40x1.60x0.07mm chip size, and VD=2.5V @ ID=115 mA DC bias.

Atlanta Micro’s AM1016 is a cascadable gain block amplifier with 14 dB gain, a 2.0 dB noise figure, +30 dBm OIP3, +17 dBm P1db, a 3.3V, 48 mA supply, a -40C to +85C operating temperature, and unconditional stability. It’s operational to +1.7V and comes in a 3mm QFN package.

The RF2815 is a high-performance low-noise amplifier (LNA) module with integrated cellular and PCS band filtering. Developed for use in GPS receivers, this module provides an excellent combination of low noise figure, high gain, high linearity, and low power consumption which is ideal for battery-operated GPS solutions.

Planar Monolithics industries (PMI) offers the Model PEC-42-500M40G-20-12-292MM ultra-wideband low noise amplifier (LNA) designed for applications operating in the 500 MHz to 40 GHz frequency range. The LNA typically provides 42 dB of gain with a noise figure of 5.5 dB at 20 GHz.
