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.

 

Highlights

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.
  • The CMD276C4 is a 2.6 to 4 GHz (S Band) LNA delivering greater than 14 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +25.5 dBm and a noise figure of 1.2 dB.
  • The CMD277C4 is a 5 to 7 GHz (C Band) LNA with 20 dB of gain, output 1 dB compression point of +26.5 dBm and a noise figure of 1.2 dB.
  • The CMD278C4 is a broadband 8-12 GHz (X Band) LNA with 15 dB of gain, output 1 dB compression point of +28 dBm and a noise figure of 1.8 dB.
