BIPOLAR ANALOG INTEGRATED CIRCUIT
SiGe:C LOW NOISE AMPLIFIER FOR GPS
The MPC8230TU is a silicon germanium carbon (SiGe:C) monolithic integrated circuit designed as low noise
amplifier for GPS. This device exhibits low noise figure and high power gain characteristics, so this IC can improve the
sensitivity of GPS receiver. In addition, the MPC8230TU which is included output matching circuit contributes to
reduce external components and system size.
The package is 8-pin lead-less minimold suitable for surface mount.
This IC is manufactured using our UHS4 (Ultra High Speed Process) SiGe:C bipolar process.
