    NXP GPS and FM Low Noise Amplifiers: Best Reception at Smallest Footprint


GPS receiver LNAs

Experience GaAs-like sensitivity with faster time-to-first-fix and less board space on a silicon budget.

20% faster time-to-first-fix enabled by low noise figure of 0.8 dB combined with superior linearity and high resilience to jamming signals

Up to 40% PC board size reduction enabled by smallest GPS LNA packages and low component count, only 2 external components.

Broad portfolio for high-end (BGU80xx series), mid-end (BGU70xx) and low-end markets (BGU60xx series)


Improved sensitivity throughput for direct and diversity path of the LTE receiver.

Sensitivity balanced between direct and diversity path for high data throughput.

Devices for direct board placement (BGU8x1 series) and module integration (BGU8x1UK series)
