Broadband Gain Block

GRF3016 is a broadband gain block designed for applications up to 10.0 GHz exhibiting flat gain over the band.

This resistively biased device employs an external resis-tor in series with VCC to set a nominal ICCQ of 80 mA. GRF3016 is internally matched to 50 Ω at the input and output ports.

The device can be operated down to low frequency via the selection of suitably large input/output caps and bias inductor.

Consult with the GRF applications engineering team for custom tuning/evaluation board data and device s-parameters.
