The SA601 is a combined RF amplifier and mixer designed for high-performance low-power communication systems from 800-1200MHz. The low-noise preamplifier has a 1.6dB noise figure at 900MHz with 11.5dB gain and an IP3 intercept of -2dBm at the input. The gain is stabilized by on-chip compensation to vary less than +-0.2dB over -40 to +85Cel temperature range. The wide-dynamic-range mixer has a 9.5dB noise figure and IP3 of -2dBm at the input at 900MHz. The nominal current drawn from a single 3V supply is 7.4mA. The Mixer can be powered down to further reduce the supply current to 4.4mA.
