A new amplifier has been added to the Broadrange Distributed Amplifierportfolio, the CMD233C4. The 2 to 18 GHz distributed amplifier is a packaged version of the CMD233 die product. The CMD233C4 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier with a low noise figure of 4.5 dB and output 1 dB compression point of +20.5 dBm. This amplifier delivers over 9 dB of gain and operates from a single 3 to 6V supply. It is a replacement for the CMM4000, now in packaged form. The product is a 50 ohm matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. Applications include military, space and communication systems.
