Custom MMIC introduces CMD192 GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier

Custom MMIC of Westford, MA, USA has added the CMD192 to its monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) product portfolio. The CMD192 is a wideband DC-20GHz GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier available in die form. It delivers greater than 20dB of gain with a corresponding output 1dB compression point of + 22dBm and a noise figure of 2.8dB at 18GHz.

Unlike most distributed amplifiers, says the firm, the CMD192 has a positive gain slope with increasing frequency, thus compensating for the higher frequency losses typical of other components in a system. In addition, the use of on-chip tracking circuits ensure consistent performance over temperature and process variation. The CMD192 is a 50 Ohm matched design that requires minimal off-chip components to complete the bias network, which is typical of this amplifier topology.

The CMD192 is suitable for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military and space applications.
