NBB-312

    DC - 12 GHz Cascadable Broadband GaAs MMIC Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Reliable, Low-Cost HBT Design 12.9dB Gain
    • High P1dB of +14.9dBm at 6GHz
    • Single Power Supply Operation
    • 50 ohm I/O Matched for High Frequency Use

    Qorvo's NBB312 cascadable broadband InGaP/GaAs MMIC amplifier is a low-cost high-performance solution for general purpose RF and microwave amplification needs. This 50 ohm gain block is based on a reliable HBT proprietary MMIC design providing unsurpassed performance for small-signal applications. Designed with an external bias resistor the NBB312 provides flexibility and stability. The NBB312 is packaged in a low-cost surface-mount ceramic package providing ease of assembly for high-volume tape-and-reel requirements. It is available in either 1000 or 3000 piece-per-reel quantities. Connectorized evaluation board designs optimized for high frequency are also available for characterization purposes.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
