-[[ADI>​CN0417]] is a small USB powered RF power amplifier optimized for 2400 MHz operation. The amplifier typically provides 20 dB of gain through its RF band of operation, boosting signals for various ​ communication protocols such as ISM, MC-GSM, W-CDMA, TD-SCDMA and LTE. It requires 5V USB supply for normal operation. The input and output, both populated with edge mounted SMA connectors, are dc blocked and matched to 50 Ω for ease of use. +
