Custom MMIC Reveals GaAs Low Noise Amplifier

The gallium arsenide amplifier operates from 33 to 45 GHz and is suited tor point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios
Custom MMIC, a developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) has added the CMD190 to its MMIC library of standard products.

The CMD190 is an efficient GaAs MMIC ultra low noise amplifier for applications from 33 to 45 GHz. This amplifier delivers over 19 dB of gain with a corresponding noise figure of 2.1 dB at 36 GHz.


The CMD190 has an all-positive bias design, and eliminates the complicated and costly negative bias sequencing circuits while also simplifying board layout.

What's more, the use of an on-chip pinch-off tracking circuit ensures consistent performance over temperature and process variation.

The CMD190 is a 50 Ω matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. It offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
