The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the highly popular CMD192 amplifier that until now had only been available in die form. It is a wideband distributed amplifier that operates from DC to 20 GHz and has a positive gain slope versus frequency. Its design allows for the cascading of multiple amplifiers without the need for extra gain compensation circuitry. The amplifier delivers a gain of over 19 dB of gain with a P1dB of 25 dBm and a noise figure of 1.9 dB at 10 GHz. The CMD192C5 is a 50 Ohm matched design, housed in a Pb-free, RoHs-compliant, 5x5 mm SMT package. It is ideal for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fiber optic applications.
