Product Description
The AG603 is a general-purpose buffer amplifier that offers high
dynamic range in a low-cost surface-mount package. At 900 MHz,
the AG603 typically provides 17.6 dB of gain, +33.5 dBm Output
IP3, and +18.5 dBm P1dB. The device combines dependable
performance with consistent quality to maintain MTBF values
exceeding 100 years at mounting temperatures of +85°C and is
housed in a SOT-89 industry standard SMT package.
• DC - 2700MHz
• +18.5 dBm P1dB at 900MHz
• +33.5 dBm OIP3 at 900MHz
• 17.6 dB Gain at 900MHz
• Single Voltage Supply
• SOT-89 SMT Package
GND
AG603
The AG603 consists of Darlington pair amplifiers using the high
reliability InGaP/GaAs HBT technology process technology and
only requires DC-blocking capacitors, a bias resistor, and an
inductive RF choke for operation.
• Internally matched to 50 Ω
RF IN
The broadband MMIC amplifier can be directly applied to various
current and next generation wireless technologies such as GPRS,
GSM, CDMA, W-CDMA, and UMTS. In addition, the AG603
will work for other various applications within the DC to 2.7 GHz
frequency range such as CATV and fixed wireless.

Test conditions unless otherwise noted
1. T = 25ºC, Supply Voltage = +6 V, Rbias = 10 Ω, Frequency = 900MHz, 50 Ω System.
2. 3OIP measured with two tones at an output power of 0 dBm/tone separated by 10MHz. The
suppression on the largest IM3 product is used to calculate the 3OIP using a 2:1 rule.
