- A word of caution.
You need SOIC parts.
I have ordered some FST3257's only to receive parts with a smaller footprint SOIP.
For FST3253 I ordered from Hong Kong and we had to exchange a number of emails to ensure they were the correct form factor, the mistake above loomed large and I had to email a picture and point to the part on Digikey.
I recently got some 74CBT3257's from RS Components this week to replace a FST3257 on a UHFSDR, resulting in a noise floor of -60dBm and no signal.
73 ... Sid.
