We’ve noticed that it is not difficult to damage the MGA-82563 GaAs MMIC
amplifier on the DBSRX board. Other than replacing it (if you have that
kind of equipment and skills) does anyone know of a suitable replacement
part? We’ve actually used a wire on one of our boards to bypass the
amplifier. In doing this we lose about 10 dB of amplification and
increased noise. Does anyone know of a better solution?
