MBC13917
General Purpose SiGe:C RF
Cascode Low Noise Amplifier

Introduction
The MBC13917 is a cost-effective, high isolation
amplifier fabricated with an advanced RF BiCMOS
process using the SiGe:C module. This is the leadless
package version of the MBC13916 device.
The MBC13917 is designed for a wide range of general
purpose RF applications and has excellent high
frequency gain and noise figure. On-chip bias circuitry
sets the bias point while matching is accomplished
off-chip, affording the maximum in application
flexibility.

Note: Maximum Ratings and ESD
1. Maximum Ratings are those values beyond which damage to the device may occur.
Functional operation should be restricted to the limits in the Recommended Operating Conditions and Electrical
Characteristics tables.
2. ESD (electrostatic discharge) immunity meets Human Body Model (HBM) ≤550 V and Machine Model (MM) ≤50 V. Additional
ESD data is available upon request.
Table 3 lists electrical characteristics associated with noise performance measured in a 50 Ω system.

Application Circuits
The MBC13917 LNA is designed for applications in the 100 MHz to 2.5 GHz range. In the application
examples included in this section, a balance is made between competing RF performance characteristics
of Icc, NF, gain IP3, and return losses to demonstrate overall performance. Conjugate matching is not used
for the input or output.
Instead, matching that achieves a tradeoff in RF performance qualities is shown. For a particular
application or specification requirement, the matching can be changed to achieve enhanced performance
of one parameter (generally at the expense of other parameters). Application information for 350 MHz,
434 MHz, 900 MHz and 1900 MHz circuits is provided.
• Section 3, “Scattering and Noise Parameters” provides Smith charts with gain and noise circles for
each application frequency.
• Section 5, “Printed Circuit Board and Bill of Materials” provides the evaluation board layout and
Bill of Material for the circuits.
4.1
350 MHz–370 MHz Applications
This application circuit was designed to provide NF = 2.1 dB, S21 gain > 27 dB for 350 MHz. Return
losses and gain are similar for 350 MHz–370 MHz.
• Component C4 has the greatest impact on return losses, NF, and gain, by moving the input and
output on the Smith chart.
• Component L1 can be lowered to improve NF, by trading off S11 return loss.
• Gain, OIP3 and P1dBoutput can be increased, by decreasing the resistor value at the output
(without impacting NF or return losses).
This application is intended for a range of designs, including TETRA land mobile and base station
transceivers. Typical performance that can be expected from this circuit at 2.7V is listed in Table 10.
Figure 16 is the 350 MHz–370 MHz application schematic with package pinouts and the circuit
component topology.

4.2
434 MHz Application
This application circuit was designed to provide NF = 2.3 dB, S21 gain > 27 dB for 434 MHz.
• Component C4 has the greatest impact on return losses, NF, and gain, by moving the input and
output on the Smith chart.
• Component L1 can be lowered to improve NF, by trading off S11 return loss.
• Gain, OIP3 and P1dBoutput can be increased, by decreasing the resistor at the output (without
impacting NF or return losses).
This application is intended for a range of designs, including TPMS, RKE, RF metering and key fob
designs using a battery.
Figure 17 is the 434 MHz application schematic with package pinouts and the circuit component topology.
