GaN Amp Boosts 0.5 to 20 GHz

Model CMD184 is a broadband gallium-nitride (GaN) monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) amplifier with broad frequency range of 500 MHz to 20 GHz. It provides more than +34 dBm output power at 1-dB compression across that frequency range, with flat gain of 13 dB. The third-order intercept point is typically +42 dBm. Ideal for use in commercial and military radios, test equipment, and telecommunications applications, the amplifier is supplied in die form and draws 530 mA current from a +28 VDC supply. It is matched to 50 {CAP OMEGA} and fully passivated for moisture protection.
