Q.

I've noticed that the S21 values (gain) in the specification table in the datasheet do not match the S21 values listed in the S-Parameter tables. Why is this?

A.

The S21 values (gain) listed in the data sheet includes the characterization board losses and any external matching circuitry.  The values listed in the S-Parameter table are for the device only all of the external fixturing have been de-embedded from the measurement.
