The CMD232C3 from Custom MMIC is a driver amplifier that operates from 2 to 9 GHz. This driver amplifier provides a gain of 15 dB, P1dB of 17 dBm and IP3 of 23 dBm. It requires a single supply voltage from 5-6 V and draws a current of 90 mA. The CMD232C3 is available in a 3x3 mm leadless surface mount package that is matched to 50 ohms at the input and output ports. The amplifier is a replacement for the Celeritek CMM-2, now in packaged form. It is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small die size and high linearity are necessary.
