BGU8009 GNSS LNA evaluation board

The BGU8009 GPS LNA evaluation board simplifies the evaluation of the BGU8009 LNA for the GPS application.

The evaluation board enables testing of the device performance and requires no additional support circuitry. The board is fully assembled with the BGU8009, the input series inductor and a decoupling capacitor. The board is supplied with two SMA connectors for input and output connection to RF test equipment. The BGU8009 can operate from a 1.5 V to 3.1 V single supply and consumes about 4.4 mA.
