GaN MMIC Amps Go Low On Noise

Custom MMIC extends its GaAs and GaN MMIC portfolio with three GaN low noise amplifiers (LNAs): the CMD276C4, CMD277C4 and CMD278C4. The GaN MMIC LNAs deliver high linearity performance with output IP3 of +32dBm while offering high input power handling of 5W. The devices are housed in a leadless 4 mm x 4 mm QFN package. They are ideally suited for radar and electronic warfare (EW) applications where high performance and high input power survivability are required.
