The ADL5541 is a broadband 15 dB linear amplifier that operates at frequencies up to 6 GHz. The device can be used in a wide variety of CATV, cellular, and instrumentation equipment. The ADL5541 provides a gain of 15 dB, which is stable over frequency, temperature, power supply, and from device to device. The device is internally matched to 50 with an input return loss of 10 dB or better up to 6 GHz. Only input/output ac coupling capacitors, power supply decoupling capacitors, and an external inductor are required for operation.
