GaAs MMIC power amplifiers cover the 5 to 11GHz range

December 20, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Custom MMIC has added three new GaAs monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) power amplifiers covering the 5 to 11GHz range to its standard product library.

The CMD169P4 (5 – 7 GHz), CMD170P4 (7.5 – 9 GHz) and CMD171P4 (9.5 – 11 GHz) each have an output 1 dB compression point of greater than +28 dBm, with gain levels from 20 to 30 dB. All three designs require only positive bias, thereby eliminating the need for costly and complicated sequencing circuitry. They also offer an on-chip detector for applications where power leveling is required. The amplifiers are housed in Pb-free RoHs compliant 4x4 QFN plastic packages and are 50-ohm matched on the input and output ports. DC blocks are not required.
