0.25W Analog Variable Gain Ampliﬁer
Avago Technologies ALM-80210 is a 0.25W Analog Con-
trolledVariable Gain Ampliﬁer which operates from 1.6GHz
to 2.7GHz. The device provides an exceptionally high OIP3
level of 39.5dBm, which is maintained over a wide attenu-
ation range. The device features wide gain control range,
low current, excellent input and output return loss.
The ALM-80210 is housed in a miniature 5.0X5.0X1.1
mm3, 10-lead multiple-chips-on-board (MCOB) module
package. This part is suitable for the AGC/Temperature
compensation circuits application in wireless infrastruc-
ture such as Cellular/PCS/W-CDMA/WLLand and new gen-
eration wireless technologies systems.
