BIPOLAR ANALOG INTEGRATED CIRCUIT
SiGe:C LOW NOISE AMPLIFIER
FOR GPS/MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS
The MPC8231TK is a silicon germanium carbon (SiGe:C) monolithic integrated circuit designed as low noise
amplifier for GPS and mobile communications. This device exhibits low noise figure and high power gain
characteristics. This device is enabled in the frequency range from 1.5 to 2.4 GHz by modifying the external matching
The package is 6-pin lead-less minimold, suitable for surface mount.
This IC is manufactured using our UHS4 (Ultra High Speed Process) SiGe:C bipolar process.
