Press Release Summary:
As 28–32 GHz GaN power amplifier (PA) in die form, CMD217 features >20 dB gain across operating frequency range withÂ corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +36.7 dBm and saturated output power of +39.3 dBm (8.5 W). Power added efficiency is 28%–35% across band. This fully matched 50Â Ω design requires only external bypass capacitors to complete bias circuitry. Suited for Ka-band communication systems applications, die is passivated for reliability and moisture protection.
Original Press Release:
New 28 - 32 GHz GaN Power Amplifier Offers High Power and High Linearity
Westford, MA – Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is pleased to announce the addition of the CMD217, a new 28 to 32 GHz GaN power amplifier in die form, to their growing product line.
The CMD217 features greater than 20 dB of gain across its operating frequency range, with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +36.7 dBm and saturated output power of +39.3 dBm (8.5 W). Power added efficiency for the CMD217 is 28% to 35% across the band.
The CMD217 is a fully matched 50 ohm design and only requires external bypass capacitors to complete the bias circuitry. The die is passivated for increased reliability and moisture protection. Ideal applications for the CMD217 include Ka-band communication systems, where high power and high linearity are required.
