    Qorvo's RFVA0016 is an integrated analog controlled variable gain amplifier for broadband applications with external matching to allow for configurations in different bands with a single module. It features exceptional linearity over a greater than 30dB gain control range. This variable gain amplifier is controlled by a single 0V to 3.3V positive supply voltage when mode pin is 0V or 5V to 0V positive supply voltage when mode pin is 5V. The RFVA0016 is packaged in a small 5.2mm x 5.2mm leadless laminate MCM which contains thermal vias for ultra-low thermal resistance. This module is external matched to 50 ohm at each individual band.
