The ADL5324 features dynamically adjustable bias which allows RF designers to set the driver’s power consumption to the performance needs of the system, without the need for a bias resistor. It features low power consumption of 62 mA on 3.3 V, up to 133 mA on 5 V, and can be biased anywhere in between these two points. The amplifier operates over a frequency range of 400 MHz to 4000 MHz and delivers OIP3 of 43 dBm, a P1dB of 29 dBm, a gain of 14.6 dB, and a low noise figure of 3.8 dB at 2140 MHz.
The RF driver amplifier is well-suited for wired and wireless applications including cellular infrastructure, industrial, science, medical (ISM) band power amplifiers, and defence and instrumentation equipment. The ADL5324 has a robust ESD rating of Class 2, ±3 kV, and is available in the SOT-89 package.
