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.
