I have an existing PCB that uses an ADL5536 (20dB gain at 500MHz). I need a pin-compatible part that provides at least 3dB more gain, 6dB would be ideal. The ADL5545 says it has 24dB gain, and do the plots in the datasheet. However, the S-parameter chart…
I am going to use ADL5545 to amplify a signal around 80MHz.
there are 3 locations that can find gain/return loss parameters, table 2 on page 5, picture 36/37 on page 16 and the .s2p file.
but they are different:
Hello, I realize that the ADL5545 is spec'ed to 6 GHz but do you have any performance numbers to 7 GHz?
The board material is IS410. The thickness for the ADL5521 is 11.66 mils. The thickness for the ADL5545 is 13 mils.
Nothing pin-compatible, there are alternatives in the industry standard SOT-89 package. Take a look at the ADL5545, HMC478ST89 or ADL5611.
For circuit simulation, use the standard block and the .s2p file.
The brd file can be imported into momentum and used for board simulation.
I would suggest you contact your ADS tech support representative for guidance on how to do this.
Thank you for reply.
Can all of the new RF/IF gain blocks (ADL5544, ADL5545, ADL5610, ADL5611) be powered using a 9V supply through a dropping resistor?
I´ve buy the EVALZ for the ADL%&10 and 5611 amplifiers, and I´ve made my own PCB for testing the same amplifiers. At the same time I have the ADL5545-EVALZ and my own PCB. In the last cases with the ADL5545 I obtain similar results with the EVALZ and…
