SiGe:C low-noise amplifier delivers high gain, low noise for GPS

Santa Clara, Calif.—NEC has introduced the µPC8233TK, the latest in its line of SiGe:C (silicon germanium:carbon) low-noise amplifiers (LNA) aimed at GPS and mobile communications applications.

The µPC8233TK offers a 0.9-dB noise figure, helping to improve GPS systems sensitivity, and a 20-dB gain, which helps overcome losses associated with external SAW filters.

The µPC8233TK offers a supply voltage of 1.7 to 3.3-V, and a current consumption level of 3.5-mA typical. It also features a Power Save function that can be controlled directly by the GPS engine's output logic. Power Save with low Enable Voltage: 1.0 V

The µPC8233TK is housed in NEC's miniature 1.5 x 1.1 x 0.55-mm, 6-pin TK package.

Availability: In stock and available now from California Eastern Labs.
