Low-Noise MMIC Amplifiers have 1.5 dB noise figure.
Communication Systems & Equipment

Low-Noise MMIC Amplifiers have 1.5 dB noise figure.

Designed for 6-18 GHz applications, GaAs MMIC low-noise amplifiers come in 2 models: CMD157 die and CMD157P3 leadless 3 x 3 mm plastic SMT package. Both units are 50 W matched designs, deliver greater than 25 dB of flat gain, and have corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +10 dBm. Biased with single positive voltage of +3.0 V @ 52 mA, devices can be used with RF power. They are suited...
