Product Description
RFMD’s SZM-5066Z is a high-linearity class AB Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor
(HBT) amplifier housed in a low-cost, surface-mountable, plastic QFN multi-chip
module package. The SZM-5066Z is made with InGaP-on-GaAs device technology
and fabricated with MOCVD for an ideal combination of low cost and high reliability.
This product is specifically designed for 802.11a/n and 802.16e applications in the
4.9GHz to 5.85GHz bands and can operate from a single voltage supply. The external output match and bias adjustability allows load line optimization for other applications covering 4.9GHz to 5.85GHz. It features an output power detector and high
RF overdrive robustness. The RoHS compliant, Green package has a matte tin finish, designated by the ‘Z’ suffix.

Description
No Connection; Can be connected to GND or Open or to other pin.
These are no connect pins and are not wired inside the package. It is recommended to connect them as shown
in the application circuit to achieve the stated performance.
This is the supply voltage for the active bias circuit of the 1st stage.
This is the RF input pin.
Power up/down control pin for the 1st stage. An external series resistor is required for proper setting of bias levels depending on control voltage. The voltage on this pin should never exceed the voltage on pin 3 by more than
0.5V unless the supply current from pin 3 is limited <10mA.
These four pins are connected internally to the collector of the 1st stage RF device. To achieve specified performance, the layout of these pins should match the Recommended Land Pattern.
C1A, C2A,
C1B, C2B
VB2A,VB2B
These pins have capacitors across them internally mounted to the package as shown in the block diagram. They
are used as tuning and coupling elements between the 1st and 2nd stages.
VPC2
Power up/down control pin for the 2nd stage. An external series resistor is required for proper setting of bias levels depending on control voltage. The voltage on this pin should never exceed the voltage on pin 32 by more
than 0.5V unless the supply current from pin 32 is limited <10mA.
This is the output port for the power detector. It samples the power at the input of the second stage.
VBIAS2
These four pins are connected internally to the base of the 2nd stage RF device. To achieve specified performance, the layout of these pins should match the Recommended Land Pattern.
These are the RF output pins and DC connections to the 2nd stage collector.
This is the supply voltage for the active bias circuit of the 2nd stage.
