CML Microcircuits Introduces New Low Noise GaAs pHEMT Gain Blocks for mmWave Applications

CML Microcircuits, global developers of analog, digital and mixed-signal semiconductors for global telecommunications systems, has announced the availability of the CMX90B701 and CMX90B702 low current, low noise Gain Blocks. These amplifiers are the latest additions to CML’s innovative SµRF product family and continue CML’s push into the higher frequency ranges of mmWave and beyond.

Both the CMX90B701 and the CMX90B702 offer an optimal balance between output power, linearity, and noise with a typical P1dB output figure of +7.5 dBm, an IP3 output of +17.5 dBm and a noise figure of 4 dB. Thanks to an innovative dual-bias mode, these low-current devices can be set to operate at either 10 mA or 15 mA from a single positive supply rail ranging between 3 and 5 V. The high maximum operating temperature of the gain blocks, (105°C), enables them to be used in wireless infrastructure and compact transceiver applications.

“With the CMX90B701 and CMX90B702, CML continues to prioritize simplicity for the designer,” said Arwyn Roberts, RF Product Manager. “With input and output ports matched to 50 ohms, these devices can be easily plugged into the RF system with minimal external components and offer an optimal balance between low power consumption and performance.”

Employing GaAs pHEMT technology, the gain blocks are ideally suited to applications such as 5G mmWave infrastructure, Ka-band Satcom and microwave backhaul, where dynamic market conditions demand mass-market, cost-effective solutions.

The CMX90B701 and CMX90B702 are the latest products to leverage CML’s significant investment in high-frequency RFIC/MMIC design capability, adding to the rapidly expanding SµRF portfolio, which includes a range of PAs, LNAs, Gain Blocks and FEMs, all based on GaAs and GaN technologies.
