Product Details

The ADL5536 is a 20 dB linear amplifier that operates at frequencies up to 1 GHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of cellular, CATV, military, and instrumentation equipment.

The ADL5536 provides the highest dynamic range available from an internally matched IF gain block. This is accomplished by providing extremely low noise figures and very high OIP3 specifications simultaneously across the entire 1 GHz frequency range. The ADL5536 also provides extremely flat gain and P1dB over frequency, which are stable over temperature, power supply, and from device to device.

The device is internally matched to 50 Ω at the input and output, making the ADL5536 very easy to implement in a wide variety of applications. Only input/output ac coupling capacitors, power supply decoupling capacitors, and an external inductor are required for operation.

The ADL5536 is fabricated on a GaAs HBT process and has an ESD rating of ±2 kV (Class 2). The device is assembled in an MSL-1 rated SOT-89 package that uses an exposed paddle for excellent thermal impedance.

The ADL5536 consumes only 105 mA on a single 5 V supply and is fully specified for operation from −40°C to +85°C.

The ADL5536 is also pin-compatible with the 16 dB gain ADL5535. Fully populated evaluation boards are available for each amplifier.

Product Details

ADL5536-EVALZ is a fully populated, 4-layer, FR4-based evaluation board. For normal operation it requires a single 5 V/200 mA power supply. The 5 V power supply should be connected to the test loops labeled VCC and GND. The RF input is applied to the SMA connector labeled RFIN. The RF output is available at the SMA connector labeled RFOUT.
