Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Custom MMIC is adding two new low noise amplifiers, the CMD167 and the CMD167P3, to their growing product line. Both are ideally suited for EW and communications systems where small die size and low power consumption are needed.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added four new amplifiers in die form to its product family: the CMD164, 165, and 173 distributed amplifiers, and the CMD166 driver amplifier.
Custom MMIC is offering a new device from its growing MMIC design library. The CMD162 is a GaAs MMIC low-noise amplifier (LNA) chip for applications from 26 to 34 GHz. Optimized for 30 GHz satellite communications, the CMD162 boasts a typical noise figure of 1.7 dB with a small-signal gain of 22 dB and an output 1 dB compression point of +7 dB.
