The CMD243 from Custom MMIC is a GaAs MMIC driver amplifier that operates from 26 to 35 GHz. This amplifier delivers a gain of 15.5 dB with a P1dB of 21 dBm and noise figure of 4.4 dB. It requires a supply voltage of 5 Volts and draws 90 mA of current. This amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching and offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection. It is available as a die and is ideally suited for military, space and communications systems where small size and high linearity are needed.
