Custom MMIC has released a 5 to 11GHz ultra-low noise amplifier, the CMD132P3, with an ultra-low noise figure of 1.3 dB, delivering more than 20 dB of gain across the entire bandwidth, with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +10 dBm.

The CMD132P3 comes in a RoHS-compliant 3x3mm QFN plastic surface mount package, it operates from a single +3.6 V supply voltage at 30mA. Designed for microwave radios and C- and X-band applications where small size and low power consumption are needed, the CMD132P3 is also suitable for point-to-point radios, point-to-multipoint radios, military and space applications, and test instrumentation. The 50 ohm matched chip design does not require any external components aside from the usual bypass capacitors.
