2-6 GHz Driver Amplifier for RF and Microwave Applications Requiring Small Size and High Linearity
Westford, MA – Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new amplifier to its expanding product offerings, the CMD231 2-6 GHz Driver Amplifier.
The CMD231 is a wideband GaAs MMIC driver amplifier that offers high gain, single positive supply voltage, low current consumption, and small die size. It is ideally suited for communications systems needing small size and high linearity. The device operates from a +3 to +6 V supply. At 4 GHz, it delivers greater than 14.5 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +13.5 dBm and an output IP3 of 23.5 dBm.
The amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching, and it offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
Applications for the CMD231 include military/commercial communications and instrumentation. This MMIC amplifier is a CMM-2 replacement (pin compatible and performance compatible).
