Advanced GaN and GaAs MMICs Unveiled by Custom MMIC at IMS 2015 – Custom MMIC will be debuting several new GaAs and GaN MMIC amplifiers, switches, and multipliers at the 2015 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Phoenix, Arizona, being held from May 19 through May 21. Their latest products include two GaAs LNAs, the CMD228P4 and CMD229P4, and a GaAs passive doubler, the CMD225.
The CMD228P4 is a broadband MMIC low noise amplifier that operates from 2 to 6 GHz, delivers 30 dB of gain and achieves a noise figure of 1.3 dB. The CMD229P4 is also a broadband low noise amplifier that operates from 5 to 11 GHz, delivers 27 dB of gain, and achieves a noise figure of 1.2 dB. Both LNAs are housed in a leadless, plastic 4 x 4 mm surface-mount package.
The CMD225 is a passive doubler in die form that operates from 4 to 8 GHz, has 12 dB conversion loss, and achieves fundamental and 3rd harmonic rejections of greater than 38 dB and 50 dB, respectively.
Applications for these components include military, space, test instrumentation and other high performance communications.
