GPS/GNSS Low-Noise Amplifier

Low-Noise-Figure GPS LNA in an Ultra-Small WLP; Versions Available with Different Levels of Gain

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


Recommended replacement: MAX2693L

The MAX2693 high-gain, low-noise amplifier (LNA) is designed for GPS L1, Galileo, and GLONASS applications. Built using Maxim's advanced SiGe process, this low-current LNA achieves an ultra-low noise figure while maximizing the input-referred 1dB compression point and the 3rd-order intercept point.

The MAX2693 operates from a 1.6V to 3.3V single supply voltage and is optimized for low current, high linearity, and high gain. A shutdown feature reduces the supply current to less than 1µA. The MAX2693 is available in a very small, lead-free, RoHS-compliant, 0.86mm x 0.86mm x 0.65mm, wafer-level package (WLP).
