August 26, 2014 - Suited for Ku-band communications systems, CMD216 delivers 16 dB of flat gain across entire 14–18 GHz bandwidth, output 1 dB compression point of +37 dBm, and saturated output power of +38 dBm. This power amplifier with fully matched 50 ohm matched design requires bias of Vdd = 28 V, 550 mA, and Vgg = -3.4 V. Power added efficiency is 32% or greater, and external bypass capacitors are only required to complete bias circuitry. Die is passivated for reliability and moisture protection.
