High performance wideband driver amplifiers from Custom MMIC
Custom MMIC, a leading developer of performance driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added two new packaged driver amplifiers to their expanding product offerings, the CMD232C3 and the CMD231C3.
2-9 GHz Driver Amplifier with 15 dB of Gain
The newly released CMD232C3 GaAs MMIC driver amplifier functions from to 2-9 GHz and delivers over 15 dB of temperature stable gain with an output 1 dB compression point of 17 dBm, and an output IP3 of 23 dBm. With this device’s high linearity in a compact 3x3 mm package, these amplifiers serve for military, space and communications systems. Custom MMIC eases the design process, requiring only a single 5 volt positive supply and supply current of only 90mA. The CMD232C3 is a 50 ohm matched design to eliminate the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The amplifier is a replacement for the Celeritek CMM-2, now in packaged form.
2-6 GHz Driver Amplifier with Low Current Consumption
Offering wideband performance with a low current consumption, the CMD231C3 leverages GaAs MMIC technology to deliver over 14.5 dB of temperature stable gain and have a supply current of only 45mA. These amplifiers required only a single 3 to 8 volt positive supply, thus simplifying the design process. It is offered in a 3x3 mm leadless surface mount package. Output 1 dB compression point is +13.5 dBm, with an output IP3 of 23.5 dBm. The CMD231C3 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The amplifier is a replacement for the Celeritek CMM-9, now in packaged form. It is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small die size and high linearity are necessary.
