We are proud to announce our latest technical brief “Realizing the SwaP-C Benefits of Designing with Positive Gain Slope MMIC Amplifiers” Modern wideband microwave systems often require a flat overall gain response with respect to frequency. Achieving this performance can be difficult, however, since most wideband microwave components exhibit a negative gain slope as the frequency increases. [...] Read More
