- Buyers Guide
Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is adding a 6 to 11 GHz low noise amplifier to their growing line of high quality products. The CMD186P3 presents an ultra-low noise figure of 2.1 dB, delivers greater than 18 dB of gain, and has a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +16.5 dBm.
The CMD186P3, which is housed in a RoHS-compliant, 3 x 3 mm QFN plastic surface mount package, requires a singlesupply voltage of +5 V at 78 mA. Ideal of microwave radios and C- and X-band applications where small size and low power consumption are needed, the CMD186P3 is also suitable for point-to-point radios and phased-array radar applications. The 50 ohm matched design of the CMD186P3 amplifier does not require any external components aside from the usual bypass capacitors.
