Custom MMIC's New Low Noise GaN Amplifier Features High Power Survivability

Custom MMIC's New Low Noise GaN Amplifier Features High Power Survivability – Custom MMIC is pleased to announce the release of the CMD218, a 5-9 GHz low noise amplifier (LNA) in die form, to their growing line of standard GaN products. 

The CMD218 offers a gain of 22 dB, output of 1 dB, compression point of +19.5 dBm, and noise figure of less than 1.25 dB across the 5 to 9 GHz frequency range. In addition, without an input limiter, the CMD218 can survive high incident power levels up to 5 W with no degradation in performance.   The CMD218 is a 50 ohm matched design, thus eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. In terms of biasing, the CMD218 can operate from a supply voltage of 5 V to 28 V, and typically draws 100 mA of quiescent current. A negative gate voltage is required for proper operation.   The LNA is ideally suited for microwave radios and C- and X-band applications where small size and low power consumption are needed. Applications include point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, military and space, and test instrumentation.   To download the full datasheet on the CMD218 Low Noise Amplifier, visit the Custom MMIC Product Library.
