The MAR-cascadabie amplifier series is a family of sillcon bipolar monolithic integrated circuits fabricated wlth nitride seif-alignment, ion impiantation for precise control of doping and passivisation to achieve high reliability. These devices, priced from below one dollar in volume quantity. exhibit excellent unit-to-unit uniformity and are ideally suited as 50-ohm amplifier building blocks. The MAR devices are simple to use if the proper board layout is used, along with proper grounding, biasing and steps to minimize parasitics.
