June 12, 2014 - Fabricated on GaN, CMD184 offers bandwidth of 0.5–20 GHz, output 1 dB compression point of >+34 dBm, and flat gain of 13 dB. This broadband 20 GHz GaN power amplifier (PA) requires off-chip bias tee for proper operation. Die offers full passivation for maximum reliability and moisture protection. In addition to microwave radio and VSAT, suitable areas of use include telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, as well as military and space applications.

Press release date: June 2, 2014

Westford, MA — Custom MMIC (, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has announced they’ll be talking about their new CMD184, a broadband 20 GHz GaN power amplifier, during the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Tampa, FL June 3rd-6th, 2014.

The CMD184 amplifier die offers an ultra-wide bandwidth of 0.5 to 20 GHz, an output 1 dB compression point of greater than +34 dBm, and flat gain of 13 dB. The CMD184 is Custom MMIC’s first released standard product fabricated on GaN.

The CMD184 requires an off-chip bias tee for proper operation. The die offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.

Ideal applications for the CMD184 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military and space.
