Manufacturable cryogenic SiGe LNA for radio astronomy and space communications


This report presents results of recent work on the design of a wideband cryogenic low noise amplifier (LNA). The amplifier operates from 200 MHz to 6 GHz with noise temperatures of 2.8 K and 4.5 K at 1.6 GHz and 5.2 GHz respectively. Design, fabrication and cryogenic test results will be described.
