0.5-6 GHz low-noise amplifier
The MGA-86563 from HewlettPackard is a three-stage, GaAs, MMIC (monolithic microwave integrated circuit) that offers low noise figure and excellent gain for applications from 0.5 GHz to 6 GHz. The device uses internal feedback to provide wideband gain and impedance matching. It is housed in an ultra-miniature SOT-363 package, which requires half the board space of the SOT-143.
