16 to 24 GHz (Ku, K Band) Driver Amplifier

16 to 24 GHz (Ku, K Band) Driver Amplifier

CMD291 RF Amplifier by Custom MMIC

The CMD291 from Custom MMIC is a GaAs MMIC driver amplifier die that operates from 16 to 24 GHz covering the Ku and K Bands. The broadband device is ideally suited for applications requiring a high dynamic range. It delivers a gain of 23 dB with a saturated output power of 26.5 dBm and has a noise figure of 5 dB. The amplifier requires a supply voltage of 3 to 5 V and consumes up to 250 mA of current. It is ideal for space applications. The amplifier is matched to 50 ohms which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD291 provides full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
