GaAs MMIC Frequency Doubler: CMD225C3

CMD225C3_Web

Custom MMIC is pleased to announce a GaAs MMIC frequency doubler, the CMD225C3. The released CMD225C3 operates with an input frequency range of 4 to 8 GHz. This passive frequency doubler can be driven with a +15 dBm input signal with a low conversion loss of 13 dB, and excellent Fo and 3 Fo isolations of at least 47 dBc. THe CMD225C3 is a 50 ohm matched design to eliminate the need for RF port matching.
