The EQY-1-63+ is an absorptive MMIC gain equalizer with a negative 1.2 dB slope versus frequency from DC to 6 GHz. This device is useful for flattening negative gain slope in amplifiers, receivers, and transmitters in a wide range of applications from wireless communications to broadband/optical, satellite, defense, and more. This model is capable of handling up to +31 dBm RF input power and provides 20 dB typical return loss across its full bandwidth. Fabricated using highly repetitive GaAs IPD technology, this equalizer provides outstanding repeatability of performance, making it suitable for volume production. It comes housed in a 2x2mm 8-lead QFN package, saving board space and minimizing the effect of parasitics. EQY-series MMIC gain slope equalizers are available with nominal attenuation slopes from 1 to 10 dB in 1 dB steps.
