Guerrilla RF Offers De-embedded S-Parameters
with Noise Data
Guerrilla RF now offers several
low noise amplifiers (LNA) with de-embedded
s-parameters which include noise parameters. These
data sets allow design engineers to accurately
simulate the tradeoffs between LNA gain, noise
figure (NF) and filter performance associated with
various matching networks and matching component
Below is a growing list of devices for which these
data sets are currently available. Links to these
new s-par/noise data sets can be accessed via the
Guerrilla RF website landing pages for the various
Please note that a GRF207X device
and its counterpart GRF208X device differ only in
the shutdown features of the devices. The core
amplifiers are identical. Thus, for instance, the
data set for GRF2070
is also applicable to GRF2080.
Industry’s highest-gain, lowest-noise figure devices
built in our next-generation E/D-mode pHEMT process:
In conjunction with s-parameters from the chosen
filter manufacturer, these new data sets allow for
an accurate simulation of the various gain, NF and
filter performance tradeoffs associated with the
cascaded SDARS LNA design.
Next month, we will examine the
practical aspects of realizing an application
circuit with the lowest possible NF using ultra-low
noise pHEMT devices.
Regardless of your design task, the Guerrilla RF
applications engineering team is ready to help. Our
goal is to make your product successful.
