The CMD216 is a 5.6 W GaN MMIC power amplifier die ideally suited for Ku band communications systems where high power and high linearity are crucial design requirements. This amplifier delivers greater than 16 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +37 dBm and a saturated output power of +38 dBm at 32% power added efficiency. The CMD216 amp is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD216 MMIC 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 our MMIC devices in a manner such that they can be readily chosen for your space applications. We offer turnkey space screening / testing service when a device is categorized as "Ready for Space Screening" on our website. In some cases, our devices have already been "Space Qualified" and are often available from stock. Just let us know when requesting price and delivery, or technical support, if your devices will be used in space.
