The MAX2611 is a low-voltage, low-noise amplifier for use from DC to microwave frequencies. Operating from a single +5V supply, it has a 3dB bandwidth of 1100MHz. The MAX2611's low noise figure and high drive capability make it ideal for a variety of transmit, receive, and buffer applications. In a typical application, the only external components needed are input and output blocking capacitors and a VCC series resistor. To improve gain and output power, an RF choke can be added in series to the bias resistor. The MAX2611 comes in a 4-pin SOT143 package, requiring minimal board space.
