January 24, 2014 - Available as bare die for hybrid assemblies, CMD167 ultra low noise GaAs MMIC amplifier operates from 10–17 GHz. Supplied in leadless 3 x 3 mm plastic SMT package, CMD167P3 operates from 8–16 GHz. Both deliver >15 dB gain, with output 1 dB compression point of +11 dBm and noise figure of 1.8 dB at 14 GHz, and feature 50 Ω matched designs that eliminate need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. Each device requires single positive supply voltage for operation.

Press release date: January 16, 2014

Westford, MA — Custom MMIC (, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is adding two new low noise amplifiers, the CMD167 and the CMD167P3, to their growing product line. Both are ideally suited for EW and communications systems where small die size and low power consumption are needed.

The CMD167 is a highly efficient, ultra low noise GaAs MMIC amplifier that operates from 10 to 17 GHz. The CMD167P3 is the packaged version of the amplifier which operates from 8 to 16 GHz. At 14 GHz, both the CMD167 and the CMD167P3 deliver greater than 15 dB of gain, with an output 1 dB compression point of +11 dBm and a noise figure of 1.8 dB. Both are 50 ohm matched designs, thereby eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching.

The CMD167 and CMD167P3 each require a single positive supply voltage for operation. The CMD167 is available as a bare die for hybrid assemblies, whereas the CMD167P3 is housed in a leadless 3x3 mm plastic surface mount package.
