Custom MMIC Unveils GaAs Driver Amplifier For Telecoms

The gallium arsenide device operates from DC to 20 GHz
Custom MMIC is adding a new driver amplifier, the CMD192C5, to its product library.

The CMD192C5 is the packaged version of the CMD192 amplifier that until now had only been available in die form.

The CMD192C5 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed amplifier that operates from DC to 20 GHz and has a positive gain slope versus frequency and low noise figure.

This design feature allows for the cascading of multiple amplifiers without the need for extra gain compensation circuitry. The amplifier delivers greater than 19 dB of gain with a corresponding output of 1dB compression point of +25 dBm, and has a low noise figure of 1.9 dB at 10 GHz. The CMD192C5 is a 50 Ohm matched design, housed in a Pb-free, RoHs-compliant, 5 x 5 mm SMT package.

Ideal applications for the CMD192C5 are microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fibre optics.

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.
