8-22 GHz (C, X, Ku, K Band) Low Phase Noise Amplifier MMIC

The CMD246 is a wideband (C, X, Ku, K band) GaAs MMIC low phase noise RF / Microwave amplifier (LPNA) ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems. At 16 GHz, the amplifier delivers 17 dB of gain, a saturated output power of +18 dBm and a noise figure of 3.5 dB. Also with an input signal of 10 GHz the amplifier provides low phase noise performance of -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. The CMD246 MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD246 also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
