Low Phase Noise Amplifier MMICs (LPNAs)

Low Phase Noise Amplifier (LPNA) MMICs Address Radar and Communication System Design Requirements

Low Phase Noise Amplifier (LPNA) MMICs Address Radar and Communication System Design Requirements

Unwanted phase noise (aka jitter) leads to poor signal integrity and loss of targets in military radar theaters, and can dramatically increase the effective bit-error-rate (BER) in data links. Meeting this challenge, Custom MMIC now offers a line of GaAs HBT RF / Microwave Low Phase Noise Amplifier (LPNA) MMICs. The line covers 6 to 40 GHz (C, X, Ku, K, and Ka band), with low phase noise performance down to -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. Our LPNA MMICs can serve as Local Oscillator (LO) drivers or receiver amplifiers in a variety of phased array radar, EW, military radio, instrumentation, and aerospace and space communication designs needing phase noise or jitter reduced to absolute lowest levels. A press release with further LPNA details can be found in our news section. A Tech Brief on how to reduce phase noise system-wide in radar and communications can be found here.
