Press Release Summary:
Supplied in die form, CMD214 accepts 12–18 GHz input signals and provides output to second harmonic (24–36 GHz) at +17 dBm. Isolations to the fundamental and third harmonics are greater than 32 dBc and 25 dBc, respectively. Typical input drive level is +14 dBm, although multiplier will operate at levels as low as +11 dBm, and bias conditions are Vdd=5 V @ 40 mA, Vgg1 = -1.8 V, and Vgg2 = -0.8 V. All ports are matched to 50 Ω.
Original Press Release:
New x2 Frequency Multiplier Offers High Output Power and Low Spur Levels
Westford, MA – Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is pleased to announce the addition of the CMD214, a new 24 to 36 GHz (output) active x2 frequency multiplier in die form, to its growing line of standard products.
The CMD214 accepts input signals in the range of 12 to 18 GHz and provides output to the second harmonic (24 to 36 GHz) at a level of +17 dBm. Isolations to the fundamental and third harmonics are greater than 32 dBc and 25 dBc, respectively. Typical input drive level for the CMD214 is +14 dBm, although the multiplier will operate at levels as low as +11 dBm. Bias conditions are Vdd=5 V @ 40 mA, and Vgg1 = -1.8 V, and Vgg2 = -0.8 V.
All ports are matched to 50 Ohms and no off-chip components are required for operation, aside from bypass capacitors on the gate and drain bias lines. Ideal applications for the CMD214 are point-to-point and point-tomultipoint radios, military and space, and test instrumentation.
