CHELMSFORD, Mass., 17 June 2016. Custom MMIC in Chelmsford, Calif., is introducing a range of high-performance RF and microwaveamplifiers and switches with ultra wideband operation for military, test and measurement, and telecommunications applications.

The SP3T CMD234C4 provides high isolation of 40 dB at 10 GHz and low insertion loss of 2 dB. The CMD234C4 includes an on board binary decoder circuit that requires 2 complimentary control voltage logic lines of 0/-5 volts.

The SP5T CMD235C4, similar to the SP3T design, features a low power integrated 3:8 TTL decoder for enhanced digital control. The CMD235C4 provides an insertion loss of 2.5 dB and a high isolation of 40 dB at 10 GHz.

The gallium arsenide CMD235C4 and CMD234C4 switches come in small size and lead-free RoHs compliant 4x4 SMT QFN packages, and have a switching speed of 66 nanoseconds.

The DC-22 GHz and 2-22 GHz gallium arsenide MMIC distributed amplifiers offer ultra wideband performance from DC to 22 GHz, with a noise figure down to 2.2 dB and a gain of 15 dB. Also linear, the CMD240 demonstrates a 1 dB compression point of 19 dBm at 10 GHz and an output IP3 of 28 dBm with 80 milliamps supply current.

With slightly less current draw and a gain of 13.5 dB from 2 to 22 GHz, the CMD241 has a noise figure of 2.3 dB. The CMD241 features enhanced linearity performance with an output P1dB of 21 dBm.

The CMD240 and CMD241 eliminate the need for an external DC block and are matched to 50 ohms. These low-noise distributed amplifiers are a solid fit for military, aerospace, and microwave and millimeter wave telecommunications applications.

The 26-35 GHz CMD243 wideband balanced driver amplifier is for applications with small size and high linearity requirements. It offers 15.5 dB of gain and operates from 26 to 35 GHz. The CMD243 also provides an output P1dB of 21 dBm, a low noise figure of 4.4 dB and is 50 ohm matched. The CMD243 is for communications, military, and space applications.
