More powerful MMIC amp

by hxhl95 on Sun Feb 05, 2012 9:57 pm

Hi all,

The following MMIC amp seems more powerful than the GALI-84 currently used in the 2010 design:

Am I mistaken, or is there a reason the GALI was chosen over this and many other similar amps?

Thanks :)

You may read the datasheet carefully and compare to the GALI84.

May I list some key features to compare:

1dB compression point: 8dBm
Saturated output power: 12dBm
Input (drive) power: -21dBm
