Avago’s AVT-51663/53663 gain block amplifiers, which are internally matched to 50-Ohms, were designed in Darlington configuration housed in an industry standard six-lead SOT-363 surface mount plastic package. The Darlington feedback structure provides inherent broad bandwidth performance resulting in a useful operating frequency range of up to 6 GHz making the AVT-51663/53663 ideal for small-signal gain cascades or IF amplification. Moreover, these new gain blocks feature easy installation and only require DC blocking capacitors, RF choke, biasing resistors and bypass capacitors for operation. Additionally, no additional RF matching components are required to achieve broadband performance.
These new gain block amplifiers were developed using advanced InGaP HBT technology that offers state-of-the-
• Small signal gain amplifier
• 50 Ohm input and output
• Broadband high linearity
• No RF matching components required
• Flat broadband frequency response up to 2GHz
• Single, fixed 5V supply
• Industry standard SOT-363 package
• Lead-free and RoHS compliant
