Multi-state, analog and digital VGA is fully programmable

Sunnyvale, Calif.—Maxim Integrated Products is touting its MAX2065 as the industry's only fully programmable, multi-state, analog and digital IF/RF variable-gain amplifier (VGA).

This single, easy-to-control device delivers a combination of VGA performance and component integration. Operating at 50MHz to 1000MHz, the MAX2065 provides “rapid fire” gain selection for four customized attenuation states, fast 25ns digital switching, and very low digital VGA amplitude overshoot/undershoot.

It is well-suited for “fast-attack” AGC (automatic gain control) circuits found in all 2.5G/3G/4G wireless infrastructure transceivers, including GSM/EDGE, CDMA, WCDMA, LTE, and WiMAX(SM) applications.

The MAX2065 is available in a 40-TQFN lead-free package, and prices start at $7.48 (1000-up, FOB USA). Pin-compatible digital-only (MAX2066) and analog-only (MAX2067) versions are also available.

Datasheets: MAX2065, MAX2066 and MAX2067.
