New DC to 20 GHz GaAs Distributed Driver Amp Offers Positive Gain Slope, Low Noise Figure
Press release date: March 19, 2014
Westford, MA — Custom MMIC (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits, is adding a new driver amplifier, the CMD192C5, to its growing product library. The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the highly popular CMD192 amplifier that until now had only been available in die form.
The CMD192C5 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier that operates from DC to 20 GHz and has a positive gain slope versus frequency. This design feature allows for the cascading of multiple amplifiers without the need for extra gain compensation circuitry. The amplifier delivers greater than 19 dB of gain with a corresponding output of 1dB compression point of +25 dBm, and has a low noise figure of 1.9 dB at 10 GHz. The CMD192C5 is a 50 Ohm matched design, housed in a Pb-free, RoHs-compliant, 5x5 mm SMT package.
Ideal applications for the CMD192C5 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fiber optics.
