The CMD172 is a wideband, RF / Microwave GaAs MMIC absorptive Voltage-Variable Attenuator (VVA) die which operates from 18 to 40 GHz. The VVA uses a single DC control voltage of -3V to 0V to control RF signal levels over a 37 dB dynamic range. The CMD172 attenuator MMIC has an extremely low insertion loss of 1.6 dB and is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD172 also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.

In addition to offering delivery from stock on our own evaluation boards for nearly all our die and packaged devices, Custom MMIC has also put nearly 30% of our devices into the X-Microwave block system. This drop-in simulation, prototyping, and production system enables efficient and expedient microwave and millimeter-wave circuit development and testing.
Custom MMIC strives to design all of our MMIC devices in a manner such that they can be readily chosen for your space application. We have an extensive history of successfully screening and qualifying our product to space applications per MIL-PRF-38534, MIL-PRF-38535, NASA INST standards and customer specific requirements. We collaborate with our customers to determine the appropriate screening and qualification based on their specific mission. Our space product screening and qualification are performed in-house and with approved partners. Whether you are looking for a space screened die, hermetically sealed packaged product or non-hermetic packaged product, Custom MMIC is prepared to help you address your qualification requirements
Design alternative parts have been engineered and manufactured to replicate the form, fit and function of the original part as closely as possible. Compare datasheets and see for yourself the design flexibility and continued reliability and performance design alternates have to offer.
