Dual Digital Variable Gain Amplifier


  • Description

    The BVA2182 is a digitally controlled variable gain amplifier (DVGA) in a 7x7mm QFN package, with a broadband frequency range of 0.5GHz to 3.8GHz and an operating VDD of 5.0V at 170mA.

    BVA2182 is high performance and high dynamic range makes it ideally suited for use in WCDMA/LTE wireless infrastructure point-to-point and other demanding wireless applications.

    The BVA2182 is an integration of two high performance digital 6-step attenuator (DSA) that provides a 31.5 dB attenuation range in 0.5 dB steps, and high linearity broadband gain block amplifiers featuring high ACLR and P1.

    The BVA2182 digital control interface supports serial programming of the attenuator, and includes the ability to define the initial attenuation state at power-up.

    The BVA2182 is integrated of two gain blocks (AMP1, AMP2), a digital step attenuator(DSA1,DSA2). Implementation requires only a few external components, such as DC blocking capacitors on the Input and Output pins, plus a bypass capacitor and a RF choke for the Output port. The BVA2182 is composed of Amp1 + DSA1 + DSA2 + Amp2.

    In some case, it can be use with a dual path such as Amp1 + DSA1 and DSA2 + Amp2 .
