ARF1208 is a low noise amplifier designed for high bandwidth applications. With 26.5 dB of linear gain and a typical noise figure of 2.5 dB, it is suitable for a wide variety of applications. When operated with a driver bias it is capable of delivering a PSAT of +19 dBm. ARF1208 operates with a single gate supply and a single drain supply. It is pre matched to 50 Ω and ESD protected to simplify handling and assembly.

The part is RoHS compliant and built with the latest manufacturing techniques to optimize for reliability and quality control.

Export from The Netherlands/EU, dual-use, end-use statement required.
