Mimix Broadband, Inc. Introduces 1.5 to 6 GHz GaAs MMIC Packaged Driver Amplifier
November 20, 2007, Houston, Texas – Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces today a two-stage feedback driver amplifier offered in a 3x3mm surface mount QFN package. Using 0.50 micron gate length GaAs MESFET device model technology, the buffer amplifier covers the 1.5 to 6 GHz frequency bands and achieves a small signal gain of 15 dB, with +15 dBm P1dB across the band. Identified as the CMM9000-QT, this device includes integrated DC blocking capacitors and RF choke inductors on-chip and is fully matched, eliminating the need for external components. This driver amplifier is well suited for a variety of wireless infrastructure, instrumentation, satellite communications and defense applications. “The CMM9000-QT compliments our current product line of integrated, self-biased, multi-stage buffer amplifiers and gain blocks covering DC to 20 GHz,” stated Amer Droubi , Product Manager, Mimix Broadband, Inc. “By eliminating the use of any external components, the CMM9000-QT greatly simplifies board design and reduces board area, making application easy and substantially improving time to market.” Mimix performs 100% RF testing on the device. Production quantities are available today from stock. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.988.4600.
