-[[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. +

 +===== WARNING ​===== 
 + 
 +<WRAP alert>​Connecting the  [[adi>​CN0417|EVAL-CN0417-EBZ Board]] directly to the Pluto SDR input (Rx) may exceed the absolute maximum ratings for the RF Input (which is +2.5 dBm). Doing this may permanently damage the PlutoSDR input. Never do this for any reason.

 + 
 +We test the [[adi>​CN0417|EVAL-CN0417-EBZ Board]] in this configuration,​ by ensuring the Tx attenuator is set to attenuation of 30dB or more. This ensures the gain of +20dB from the  [[adi>​CN0417|EVAL-CN0417-EBZ Board]] will not exceed the maximum ratings for the RF Input. 
 + 
 +Never do this in normal operation.
