Distributed Driver Amplifier operates from DC to 20 GHz.
August 15, 2013 -
Supplied in die form, Model CMD192 delivers greater than 20 dB of gain with corresponding output 1dB compression point of +22 dBm and noise figure of 2.8 dB at 18 GHz. GaAs MMIC has positive gain slope with increasing frequency, compensating for frequency losses. Using on-chip tracking circuits to ensure consistent performance over temperature and process variation, CMD192 is suitable for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space applications.

Custom MMIC's New Positive Gain Slope Amplifier Operates from DC to 20 GHz
Westford, MA — Custom MMIC (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), announces the addition of the CMD192 to their growing MMIC library of standard products. The CMD192 is a wideband DC-20 GHz GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier available in die form. This amplifier delivers greater than 20 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of + 22 dBm and a noise figure of 2.8 dB at 18 GHz.
Unlike most distributed amplifiers, the CMD192 has a positive gain slope with increasing frequency, thus compensating for the higher frequency losses typical of other components in a system. In addition, the use of on-chip tracking circuits ensure consistent performance over temperature and process variation. The CMD192 is a 50 Ohm matched design that requires minimal off-chip components to complete the bias network, which is typical of this amplifier topology.
The CMD192 is suitable for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military and space applications.
