Picking L3 Narda Miteq LNA

This is a short article to explain how to find the proper L3 Narda Miteq LNA.

There are four questions that need to be answered:

  1. Pick the correct frequency in GHz
  2. Pick the proper gain level in dBm
  3. Pick the appropriate Noise Figure (dB)
  4. Power output (in dBm)

On the amplifier search, it is not necessary to fill in all parameters. The noise temperature in kelvin will be much more applicable to satcom engineers, if you don’t know what that number is going to be don’t worry about it.

This works like the Digi-Key search engine, it will give you as many results as have NOT BEEN FILTERED OUT.

Digi-Key has several LNA’s from L3 Narda Miteq. These can be found on the Digi-Key website; however, there are several other combinations that may not currently be hosted on our website. To find an applicable part number, go to:

This page hosts an amplifier search. This has the main components that are necessary to choose the proper amplifier.

Make sure to choose “Wider” in the search range to not eliminate choices that would be removed by choosing “narrower” or “exact”

This will give a range of part numbers. If they are not hosted on the Digi-Key website, they can be quoted. Please contact quotes@digikey.com
