NPN SILICON RF TRANSISTOR USM 2SC3356 FEATURES Low noise and high gain : NF = 1.1 dB TYP., Ga = 11 dB TYP. @ VCE = 10 V, IC = 7 mA, f = 1 GHz High power gain : MAG = 13 dB TYP. @ VCE = 10 V, IC = 20 mA, f = 1 GHz. APPLICATIONS For microwave low-noise amplification. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND SHORT APPLICATION NOTE The USM 2SC3356 series of NPN epitaxial silicon transistors, 3-PIN MNIMOLD, is designed for low cost amplifier and oscillator applications. Low noise figures, high gain, and high current capability equate to wide dynamic range and excellent linearity. The USM 2SC3356 series offers excellent performance and reliability at low cost. This is achieved by USM gold metallization system and their direct nitride passivated base surface process. The USM 2SC3356 series is available in die form for high frequency applications. It is also available in several low cost plastic package styles TO-92 and SOT 89. TECHNOLOGY DESCRIPTION: SEMICONDUCTOR-THIN FILM MANUFACTURING All thin film microwave products are manufactured using advanced semiconductors and thin film technologies including ultra-stable and self passivating Tantalum Nitride resistors, gold interconnect metallization and reliable MNOS capacitors to achieve excellent uniformity, performance and reliability. Thin film technology is the preferred solution for all applications that require low noise, long term stability and excellent performance at very high frequencies. US Microwaves employs proprietary thin film technologies for deposition of a wide range of resistive films with sheet resistance films from 1W/sq to 10,000W/sq. All US Microwaves products are available in die form and are ideal for high reliability hybrid and multi chip module applications.
