Benefits of including LNAs in your System Design

Abstract: This Application Note provides a discussion of the benefits of using Low-Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) in radio system design. Maxim provides a wide range of low-cost, high-performance LNAs in a variety of frequency bands, currently more than 30 models. The benefits in overall system performance is easily justified given the Maxim LNA attributes of low-cost, small package size, very low power consumption, and excellent linearity.
