Custom MMIC launches 20GHz GaAs distributed driver amp offering positive gain slope and low noise

Custom MMIC of Westford, MA, USA, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new driver amplifier to its growing product library. The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the CMD192 amplifier (launched last August) which, until now, had only been available in die form.

The CMD192C5 is a wideband gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) distributed amplifier that operates from DC to 20GHz and has a positive gain slope versus frequency. This design feature allows for the cascading of multiple amplifiers without the need for extra gain-compensation circuitry.

The amplifier delivers more than 19dB of gain with a corresponding output 1dB compression point (P1dB) of +25dBm, and has a low noise figure of 1.9dB at 10GHz. The CMD192C5 is a 50Ω matched design, housed in a Pb-free, RoHs-compliant, 5mm x 5mm SMT package.

Suitable applications for the CMD192C5 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fiber optics.
