Ceramic Amplifier Furnishes Flat Gain

Oct. 23, 2012
cThis ceramic-packaged MMIC-on-LTCC amplifier offers flat gain from 10 MHz to 6 GHz.

Model CMA-62+ is a ceramic-packaged, hermetically sealed, nitrogen-filled monolithic amplifier from Mini-Circuits with flat gain from 10 MHz to 6 GHz. It consists of a monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) chip bonded to a low-temperature-cofired-ceramic (LTCC) substrate. It delivers gain of 15.2 dB at 2 GHz, 15.4 dB at 4 GHz, and 13.7 dB at 6 GHz, with gain flatness of ±0.6 dB from 50 to 3000 MHz and ±10 dB from 700 to 2700 MHz. The output power at 1-dB compression is typically +19.2 dBm at 2 GHz and +15.4 dBm at 4 GHz, while the output third-order-intercept point (IP3) is typically +33.4 dBm at 2 GHz and +27.3 dBm at 4 GHz.
