Custom MMIC introduces 26-35GHz Balanced Driver Amp
Custom MMIC has added a new amplifier to its expanding product offerings, the CMD243 26-35 GHz low noise driver amplifier.
The CMD243 is a wideband self-biasing GaAs MMIC balanced driver amplifier that offers 15.5 dB of gain with an output P1dB compression point of +21dBm. The amplifier operates from a single 5V supply and draws just 90mA typical. The balanced design provides good VSWR matching, along with improved stability and gain flatness.
The amplifier is a 50Î© matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. Applications for the CMD243 include military, space and communications systems where small size and high linearity are necessary.
