GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier die for military and space applications introduced by Custom MMIC

WESTFORD, Mass., 21 Nov. 2012. Custom MMIC in Westford, Mass., is introducing the CMD173 wideband gallium arsenide monolithic microwave integrated circuit (GaAs MMIC) distributed amplifier die for military, space, microwave radio, very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT), telecommunications, test, and instrumentation applications from DC to 20 GHz.

This device delivers greater than 15 decibels of gain with a corresponding output 1-decibel compression point of +18 dBm, and a noise figure of 1.5 decibels at 8 GHz.

The CMD173 is an all-positive bias design to eliminate complicated and costly sequencing circuits while also simplifying board layout, company officials say. In addition, the use of on-chip tracking circuits delivers consistent performance over temperature and process variation.

The CMD173 is a 50-Ohm matched design that offers passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection. The device does require off-chip bias networks.
