I have two questions:
1. The datasheet (p.11 last paragraph) indicates "...gate voltage is pulled down to VNEG..." which would be incompatible with devices which have absolute max ratings less negative than -2.5 V. Is there a way to address this concern?
2. Will a fixed value of resistor for R10 adequately set drain current for a production run of depletion mode MESFET MMICs such as the Triquint TGA2567-SM?
