Maxim Integrated Products announces the MAX2667/MAX2669, the newest additions to its GPS/GNSS low-noise amplifier (LNA) family. Designed using Maxim's advanced SiGe processes, these fully integrated LNAs feature an exceptionally low noise figure of 0.65dB. This improves receive sensitivity and read range over discrete or highly integrated CMOS solutions.
The MAX2667/MAX2669 provide the best performance, smallest size, and lowest current consumption available in the market, making them the clear choice for smartphones, personal navigation devices (PNDs), and other battery-powered handheld devices. The MAX2667/MAX2669 provide different linearity options to suit system requirements. For customers who wish to ensure a higher level of receive performance in the presence of signal blockers, the MAX2669 (at 4.5dBm) provides approximately 8dBm better in-band and out-of-band IIP3 than the MAX2667 (at -3.5dBm), for a mere 4.0mA extra supply current.
