The TQP369182 is a general-purpose buffer amplifier that offers high dynamic range in a low-cost surface-mount package. At 1.9 GHz, the amplifier typically provides 21.3 dB gain, +27.6 dBm OIP3, and 3.9 dB Noise Figure while drawing 45 mA current. The device combines dependable performance with consistent quality to maintain MTTF values exceeding 100 years at mounting temperatures of +85°C. The device is housed in a lead-free/green/RoHS-compliant industry-standard SOT-89 package.
The TQP369182 consists of a Darlington-pair amplifier using TriQuint’s high reliability InGaP/GaAs HBT process technology. Only DC-blocking capacitors, a bias resistor, and an inductive RF choke are required for operation.
This broadband MMIC amplifier can be directly applied to various current and next generation wireless technologies such as CDMA, W-CDMA, and LTE. In addition, the TQP369182 will work for other applications within the DC to 6 GHz frequency range.
