Ultra-Broadband Gain Block: GRF3016

Source: Guerrilla RF

The GRF3016 is a broadband gain block designed to provide flat gain over an exceptionally wide band of near DC to 10GHz. The device can be operated down to low frequency via the selection of suitably large input/output caps and bias inductor.

This resistively biased device employs an external resistor in series with VCC to set a nominal ICCQ of 70 mA. The GRF3016 is internally matched to 50 Ω at the input and output ports.

Additional Features Include:

  • Gain: 13.5 dB
  • OP1dB: 16.5 dBm
  • OIP3: 30 dBm
  • Evaluation Board Noise Figure: 4.2 dB
  • Internally Matched: 50Ω
  • Process: InGaP HBT
  • Compact 1.5 x 1.5 mm DFN-6 Package
