maximum available gain

[′mak·sə·məm ə¦vāl·ə·bəl ′gān]
(electronics)
The theoretical maximum power gain available in a transistor stage; it is seldom achieved in practical circuits because it can be approached only when feedback is negligible. Abbreviated MAG.

Figure 6 shows the frequency dependence of gain per stage for InP HEMT MMIC amplifiers operating from 94 to 155 GHz and the calculated maximum available gain from the small-signal InP HEMT device model.
Figure 7 shows the current gain [h.sub.21] and the maximum power gain [G.sub.max] (defined as the maximum stable gain when the transistor is conditionally stable and as the maximum available gain when the transistor is unconditionally stable) for the same 0.5 x 2.5 [[[micro]meter].sup.2] HBT, as well as for a high performance 0.5 x 300 [[micro]meter] GaAs ion-implanted MESFET.
The predicted maximum available gain is 10.9 dB with an associated power of 21 dBm.
