Broadband Linear Gain Block
0.05 to 8.0 GHz

GRF2013W is a broadband gain block with low noise figure and high linearity designed for small cell, wireless infrastructure and other high performance applications. It exhibits outstanding broadband NF, linearity and re-turn losses over 0.7 to 3.8 GHz with a single match.

Optimizing the bias inductor and coupling caps for lower frequency operation will yield strong performance down to 50 MHz. For applications above 4 GHz, the addition of simple external matching yields outstanding linearity and gain performance up to 8 GHz.

The device is operated from a supply voltage of 2.7 to 8.0V with a selectable Iddq range of 15 to 100 mA for optimal efficiency and linearity.

Consult with the GRF applications engineering team for custom tuning/evaluation board data. De-embedded s-parameters are available on the website landing page for the device.
