The F1180 RF front-end offers 16.5dB gain with 3.5dB NF and +38dBm OIP3 performance at 2100MHz. The digital step attenuator provides 30dB adjustment range in 2dB steps via the SPI interface controller. For strong signal conditions, each RF amplifier can be configured to be internally bypassed via the SPI interface. The RF front-end output and mixer input signals are bonded to separate pins to allow interstage
image-reject filtering.

Each of the dual mixer paths provide 8.2dB power gain, 10.5dB NF and +35dBm OIP3 performance. An external LO signal is applied to the mixer LO port. This device is packaged in a 7 × 7 mm 48-VFQFPN with 50Ω single-ended RF and LO inputs, and 200Ω differential IF output impedance for ease of integration.
