925–960 MHz Linear Power Amplifier Module

Currently Viewing:

The Avago MGA-43828 is a fully matched, highly linear power amplifier (PA) designed for use in the 925-960 MHz band. Based on Avago’s proprietary 0.25um GaAs E-pHEMT technology, the device features high linearity, gain and power-added efficiency (PAE) with integrated power detector and shutdown functions. The MGA-43828 is ideal for use as a final stage PA for Small Cell base transceiver station (BTS) applications.
