Tech Brief Aids Receiver Designers in Selecting Optimal Low Noise Amplifier MMICs

Custom MMIC is proud to announce a new technical brief describes additional selection criteria commonly overlooked during the initial evaluation phase of an LNA.

Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) MMICs are a critical component in virtually all radar, wireless communication and instrumentation systems. There are a wide range of options and tradeoffs an engineer must consider when picking an LNA MMIC for a particular system design. The noise figure is often the feature of primary focus, as noise figure defines the sensitivity of the receiver — a critical system requirement. After noise figure, other project specific needs related to performance and size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) are then considered. Often these features are not heavily weighted, but they can make a big difference in advanced microwave applications.

Keeping these additional parameters in mind may help an engineer save time during the design cycle, save money during assembly, and enhance a product’s competitive advantage, leading to valuable contract wins.
