Two new products have been added to the company’s portfolio of low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and phase shifter MMICs. The CMD270P3 is a C-band, 4 to 8 GHz LNA housed in a leadless 3 x 3mm plastic surface mount package. It delivers greater than 16 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm and a noise figure of 1.7 dB. The CMD270P3 is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. It is ideally suited for EW and communications receivers where high performance, small size, and low power consumption are needed. It can also be used as an alternative to CMD185P3, based on pin and performance compatibility. The CMD174 die is a GaAs MMIC 5-bit phase shifter that operates from 3 to 6 GHz and provides 0 to 360º of monotonic phase coverage, with a LSB of 11.25º. The device is controlled with negative logic of 0 and -3V and features an insertion loss of 7.6 dB and a phase error of +/-2º. The CMD174 is a 50 ohm matched design. It is ideally suited for phased array radar applications.
