Custom MMIC, a leading developer of high performance monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC), announces a new series of high performance IP3 fundamental mixers, CMD253C3, CMD254C3 and CMD255C3.
Custom MMIC announces three GaAs MMIC mixers for C-band, X-band, K-band, and Ka-band applications. The CMD251C3 fundamental mixer, CMD252C4 I/Q mixer, and CMD180 fundamental mixer deliver best-in-class isolation and conversion loss performance while offering low input power requirements. These new MMIC mixers help increase dynamic range while reducing LO power and subsequent filtering requirements.
Custom MMIC announced an expanded collaboration withX-Microwave LLC, developers of a modular/drop-in simulation, prototyping and production system for solderless and reconfigurable RF/microwave circuits up to 67 GHz. The X-MWblockTM system enables efficient and expedient microwave and mmWave circuit development and testing, using industry grade non-linear online simulation tools.
Custom MMIC has published a free technical brief, “Addressing Your Phase Noise Challenges in Radar and Communication Systems,” illuminating key aspects of how phase noise impacts signal quality in radar and communication systems. The tech brief provides insight into product solutions that can be used in radar and communication systems that are phase noise constrained.
Custom MMIC highlights the company's space qualification capabilities for high performance GaAs MMICs. Over 70 commercial off-the-shelf MMIC die can be qualified to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K or hermetic packaged and qualified per MIL-PRF-38535 Class S.
Custom MMIC has added two unique distributed amplifiers to their performance leading standard product line. The CMD242 distributed amplifier features ultra-wideband performance from DC to 40 GHz while delivering 10.5 dB of gain with a flatness of +/- 1 dB. The CMD244 distributed driver amplifier covers DC to 24 GHz, with a unique positive gain slope over frequency range.
