We describe distributed amplifiers built using advanced circuit design techniques to improve gain and noise performance at low frequencies. Using these techniques we have developed an amplifier IC with a 0-36 GHz bandwidth and a noise figure of 4 dB at low frequencies. This frequency range starting from 0 Hz makes it possible to use the IC as a baseband amplifier for SDH optical transmission systems and this noise figure is about 1 dB better than conventional distributed amplifiers. We also present another amplifier IC built using our loss compensation technique to improve high-frequency performance of the amplifier. This IC has a 0-44-GHz bandwidth, which is the widest among all reported GaAs MESFET baseband amplifiers
