40MHz to 4GHz Linear Broadband Amplifiers

High-Performance Broadband Amplifier Family with Exceptional Gain Flatness

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2612–MAX2616 is a family of high-performance broadband gain blocks designed for use as a PA predriver, low-noise amplifier, or as a cascadable 50Ω amplifier with up to +19.5dBm output power. These devices are suited for many applications that include cellular infrastructure, private or commercial microwave radios, and CATV or cable modems. The operating frequency range extends from 40MHz to 4000MHz. The amplifier operates on a +3V to a +5.25V supply with input and output ports internally matched to 50Ω. The device family is available in a pin-to-pin compatible, compact 2mm x 3mm TDFN lead-free package.
