Custom MMIC adds 22-GHz wideband GaAs distributed amplifier

Jan. 17, 2017

Chelmsford, MA. Custom MMIC announced it has added a new distributed amplifier to its BroadRange Distributed Amplifier portfolio.

The ultrawideband DC to 22-GHz performance of the CMD240P4 distributed amplifier is accompanied with a low noise figure of 2.2 dB and +28-dBm IP3. The performance levels of this device make it suited for a range of applications, including electronic warfare, SIGINT, military radar, and instrumentation.

The CMD240P4 also provides flat, stable gain of 15 dB and a 1-dB compression point of +19 dBm. An additional benefit of this GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier design is the integrated 50-Ω Ohm matching at each port, eliminating the need for external RF port matching.

The CMD240P4 operates with a single positive bias voltage from 3 to 8 V, and it requires only 80 mA of bias current. The distributed amplifier comes packaged in a Pb-free RoHS compliant 4×4 QFN package with an operating temperature of -40 to 85°C.
