BGS8L4UK
SiGe:C Low Noise Amplifier MMIC with bypass switch for LTE
Rev. 1 — 1 December 2015
Product data sheet
1. Product profile
1.1 General description
The BGS8L4UK is a Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) with bypass switch for LTE receiver
applications, available in a Wafer Level Chip-Scale Package (WLCSP). The BGS8L4UK
requires one external matching inductor.
The BGS8L4UK delivers system-optimized gain for both primary and diversity
applications where sensitivity improvement is required. The high linearity of this low noise
device ensures the required receive sensitivity independent of cellular transmit power
level in Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) systems. When receive signal strength is
sufficient, the BGS8L4UK can be switched off to operate in bypass mode at a 1 A
current, to lower power consumption. The BGS8L4UK requires only one external
matching inductor.
The BGS8L4UK is optimized for 720 MHz to 960 MHz.

Semiconductors product is suitable and fit for the customer’s applications and
products planned, as well as for the planned application and use of
customer’s third party customer(s). Customers should provide appropriate
design and operating safeguards to minimize the risks associated with their
applications and products.
NXP Semiconductors does not accept any liability related to any default,
damage, costs or problem which is based on any weakness or default in the
customer’s applications or products, or the application or use by customer’s
third party customer(s). Customer is responsible for doing all necessary
testing for the customer’s applications and products using NXP
Semiconductors products in order to avoid a default of the applications and
the products or of the application or use by customer’s third party
customer(s). NXP does not accept any liability in this respect.
Limiting values — Stress above one or more limiting values (as defined in
the Absolute Maximum Ratings System of IEC 60134) will cause permanent
damage to the device. Limiting values are stress ratings only and (proper)
operation of the device at these or any other conditions above those given in
the Recommended operating conditions section (if present) or the
Characteristics sections of this document is not warranted. Constant or
repeated exposure to limiting values will permanently and irreversibly affect
the quality and reliability of the device.
Terms and conditions of commercial sale — NXP Semiconductors
products are sold subject to the general terms and conditions of commercial
