RF Amplifier Presented as World's Smallest
Optimized for operation from 500 MHz to 12 GHz, the 0402-packaged VMMK-2x03 family of RF amplifiers is presented as the smallest such devices of their type. The 1.0 x 0.5 x 0.25-mm devices use 10% of the board area of a standard SOT-343 package and have no internal wirebonds with all I/Os routed to the backside of the device wafer to significantly reduce signal loss and minimize parasitics. The family includes the 0.5 to 6.0 GHz VMMK-2103, the 15 dB (at 5 GHz) 1.0 to 10.0 GHz VMMK-2203, the 0.5 to 6.0 GHz VMMK-2303 supporting 1.8 to 3.3 V applications, the 2.0 to 4.0 GHz VMMK-2403 with 2.5 dB NF, and the 1.0 to 12.0 GHz VMMK-2503 with flat gain performance up to 8.0 GHz. Pricing is less than $1.00 in volume.
