The CMD217 is a 8.5 W RF / Microwave GaN MMIC power amplifier die ideally suited for Ka band communications systems where high power and high linearity are indispensable design requirements. This device delivers greater than 20 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +36.7 dBm and a saturated output power of +39.3 dBm at 35% power added efficiency. The CMD217 amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD217 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" or "Mission Specific" and are often available from stock. Our "Mission Specific" devices are screened based on custom applications where screening is derived from MIL requirements and tailored specific to customer needs. Just let us know when requesting price and delivery, or technical support, if your devices will be used in space.
