DC to 20 GHz (L, S, C, X, Ku, K Band) Wideband GaAs MMIC Power Amplifier

The CMD249 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier die which operates from DC to 20 GHz. The amplifier delivers greater than 12 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +29 dBm and output IP3 of 38 dBm at 10 GHz. The CMD249 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD249 offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.

(Note: This device is the same device listed as CMD249 in our power amplifiers section.)

    Custom MMIC Space Qualified MIMCs
    Space Qualification

    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.
