WLAN/WiMAX Low-Noise Amplifiers

Low-Noise-Figure, 2.4GHz and 3.5GHz LNAs in an Ultra-Small WLP; Versions Available with Different Levels of Gain

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2692/MAX2695 low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) are designed for WLAN/WiMAX® applications. Designed in Maxim's advanced SiGe process, the devices achieve high gain and ultra-low-noise figure while maximizing the point and the 3rd-order intercept point.

The devices operate from a +1.6V to +3.6V single supply. The optional shutdown feature in the devices reduces the supply current to less than 10µA. The devices are available in a very small lead-free, RoHS-compliant, 0.86mm x 0.86mm x 0.65mm wafer-level package (WLP).
