Distributed Amplifier MMICs

Our Broad Range Distributed Amplifier MMICs are the Only Choice for Wideband RF / Microwave Designs

In applications where high dynamic range across broad bandwidths is required, Custom MMIC's Broad Range Distributed Amplifiers excel at and exceed expectations of quality and reliability. Several of these Distributed MMIC Amplifiers offer positive gain slope and a single positive voltage which eliminates the need for large, complex, and costly biasing and matching circuitry. Additional features include: DC-50 GHz (from UHF up through X and K, and into V band) coverage, 50 ohm matched design, and high dynamic range.

Eliminating the need for DC Blocks and RF port matching, some of Custom MMICs Broadband Distributed Amplifiers are designed with internal 50 Ohm matching circuitry. Offering another layer of bill-of-material (BOM), cost, and footprint reduction, many of these Distributed Amplifier MMICs also require only a single-positive supply rail and exhibit positive gain slope, which removes the need for biasing and matching circuitry, and gain slope equalization circuitry.
