Ultra-Wideband Distributed LNA

The CMD241P4 is a packaged version of the popular CMD241 ultra-wideband GaAs MMIC distributed low noise amplifier (LNA). The wideband operation (2 to 22 GHz), low noise figure, low current consumption, excellent return loss, and compact size of this distributed amplifier device make it ideal for L-, S-, C-, X-, Ku-, and K-band wideband radar, […]

MMIC Broadband Frequency Doubler

The CMD226N3 broadband passive frequency doubler covers an input frequency of 7 to 11 GHz input frequency (C-, X, input; Ku-, and K-band output). This doubler’s low conversion loss and excellent Fo isolation make it ideal for military radar, SMDS, SATCOM, VSAT, and LO chains for point-to-point microwave/millimeter-wave radio in cellular backhaul applications. CUSTOM MMIC […]

Broadband GaAs MMIC Mixers

Two new low loss, high linearity and high isolation MMIC mixers, the CMD181 and CMD261 are both general purpose double balanced mixers that can be used for upconversion or downconversion, or as image rejection mixers or single sideband modulators with the appropriate external hybrids and power splitters.

GaAs MMIC Low Phase Noise Amps

The new GaAs MMIC Low Phase Noise Amplifier family offers previously unattained phase noise performance. The five product family achieves phase noise performance as low as -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. They are used in LO and high sensitivity receiver circuits for military and instrumentation applications. CUSTOM MMIC (31)

Distributed Low Noise Amplifier

The CMD241P4, a packaged version of the popular CMD241 ultra-wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier, is offered in a plastic 4×4 QFN package. It exhibits gain greater than 13 dB with a low noise figure of 2.3 dB. Both the gain and noise figure of this unit are extremely stable over temperature from -55 to +85ºC. […]

Reach New Levels of Linearity in Passive Mixers with GaN Technology

by Charles Trantanella, Chief Scientist  – Custom MMIC When microwave engineers hear the words “Gallium Nitride” (GaN), one thought usually comes to their minds: power amplifiers. Due to its physical properties of high-breakdown voltage and high-thermal conductivity, GaN is ideally suited over its Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) counterpart for the development of highly efficient, highly effective […]
