The MSA-0505 is a high performance medium power silicon bipolar Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) housed in a low cost, surface mount package. This MMIC is designed for use as a general purpose 50Ω gain block.Typical applications include narrow and broad band IF and RF amplifers in commercial systems.
The MSA-series is fabricated using Avago’s 10 GHz fT, 25 GHz fMAX, silicon bipolar MMIC process which uses nitride self-alignment, ion implantation, and gold metallization to achieve excellent performance, uniformity and reliability. The use of an external bias resistor for temperature and current stability also allows bias ﬂexibility.
