Part Number: MSA-0635
Function: Cascadable Silicon Bipolar MMIC Amplifier
Package: 35 micro-X Type
Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard, HP
The MSA-0635 is a high performance silicon bipolar Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit
(MMIC) housed in a cost effective, microstrip package. This MMIC is designed for use as a general purpose 50 Ωgain block. Typical applications include narrow and broad band IF and RF amplifiers in commercial and industrial applications.
The MSA-series is fabricated using HP’s 10 GHz fT, 25 GHz fMAX, silicon bipolar MMIC process which uses nitride self-alignment, ion implantation, and gold metalli zation to achieve excellent performance, uniformity and reliability. The use of an external bias resistor for temperature and current stability also allows bias flexibility.
