High Linearity Broadband LNA with >35 dB of Gain

The HILNA CX Low Noise Amplifier is the latest addition to the family of HILNA broadband low noise amplifiers, covering C- to X-Band frequencies. This model features a miniature form factor of 1.2 cubic inches allowing for ease of integration into space-constrained systems.

The HILNA CX delivers over 35 dB of gain across the entire broad range of 5 GHz to 10 GHz with a noise figure of 2.5 dB and OIP3 of +21 dBm. The HILNA CX’s ultra-broadband coverage allows the user comprehensive spectrum coverage within a single, miniature module.

The HILNA CX s robust power supply also operates over a very broad range, easily allowing the unit to be integrated into systems without regard to power supply precision.
