Custom MMIC launches 14-18GHz GaN PA for Ku-band communications

Custom MMIC of Westford, MA, USA, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added to its expanding product line with the CMD216, a 14-18GHz gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier in die form suitable for Ku-band communications systems.

The CMD216 delivers 16dB of flat gain across the entire 14-18GHz bandwidth, a P1dB (output power at 1dB compression point) of +37dBm, and a saturated output power of +38dBm. The device requires a bias of Vdd = 28V, 550mA, and Vgg = -3.4V. The amplifier also has a power-added efficiency (PAE) of 32% or more.

The CMD216 is a fully matched 50 ohm matched design and only requires external bypass capacitors to complete the bias circuitry. The die is passivated for increased reliability and moisture protection.
