Custom MMIC Announces New 9-18 GHz Amplifier
Balanced LNA delivers high gain for low power, compact systems
Custom MMIC, a US developer of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is offering a new, balanced low-noise amplifier (LNA) for electronic warfare (EW) and communication systems where small size and low power consumption are critical.
The CMD223 9-18 GHz LNA features a low noise figure, high-gain, broadband performance, excellent return losses, and single positive supply voltage, according to the company.
At 13.5 GHz, the CMD223 delivers greater than 22 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +13.5 dBm and a noise figure of 1.5 dB.
The device is a 50 ohm matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. It also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
Applications for this new LNA include point-to-point radios, military and space, test instrumentation, and sensors.
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
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.
