I've used the RFMD NBB300/310 and they are excellent up to 14GHz.
The NLB300 and NLB310 are in plastic packages and are somewhat cheaper
than the NBBs, but have similar gain characteristics. They don't do
strange things when compressed; I've driven them right up to the abs.
max i/p power level and they survive, and I don't see any evidence of
harmonic problems when driving a Hittite HMC364 /2 prescaler.
They do exactly what it says on the datasheet.
