GaN and GaAs MMICs bolster Mouser’s global offering

Qorvo's complete line of Custom MMIC products is now available to order on the Mouser Electronics website.

The portfolio includes high-performance gallium nitride (GaN) and gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) suitable for a broad range of aerospace, defence, space, and commercial applications.

Qorvo recently acquired Custom MMIC to join Qorvo's Infrastructure and Defense Products (IDP) group.

The addition of Custom MMIC's products will enhance Qorvo's portfolio of solutions, now covering the entire RF signal chain, for defence customers, including satellite communications, microwave test equipment, electronic warfare, and advanced phased array radar applications.

Products now in stock at Mouser include multiple low noise amplifiers, providing a useful solution for communications applications that demand a small form factor and low power consumption.

The CMD264P3 6-18GHz low-noise amplifier (LNA) and evaluation board deliver greater than 26dB of gain with a corresponding output 1dB compression point of +12dBm.

The CMD270P3 4-8GHz LNA — also ready to ship, with evaluation board coming soon — features an ultra-low noise figure of 1.7dB and delivers greater than 16dB of gain, while the CMD307P3 8-16GHz LNA and evaluation board offer a low noise figure of 2dB.

These LNAs are all 50 Ohm matched designs, eliminating the need for both external DC blocks and RF port matching.

The CMD305P36-14GHz driver amplifier is a broadband MMIC offering low current consumption and +20.5dBm saturated output power.

Qorvo's CMD284P4 DC-22 GHz distributed amplifier is a GaAs MMIC that delivers ultra-wideband performance in a leadless 4 mm × 4 mm package. Mouser also now stocks the CMD305P3 evaluation board and CMD284P4 evaluation board.
