Hello,

 

I have used HMC816LP4E Low Noise Amplifier in my communications receiver design for 437 MHz. I am obtaining minimum Noise Figure of 0.67 dB for gain of 20 dB for 3.3V operation. Should changing the bias resistor to a value lower than 10 kOhm help in reduction? What shall be the effect of DC biasing inductor in the performance of IC?
