MMIC LNA covers 6 GHz and 18 GHz bandwidth
The device is ideally suited for electronic defence and communications systems where small size and low power consumption are needed.
This broadband MMIC LNA operates between 6 GHz and 18 GHz with a noise figure of just 1.4 dB.
It delivers greater than 27 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +12 dBm.
The broadband device is a 50-ohm matched design, which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching.
Housed in a leadless 3 mm × 3 mm plastic surface-mount air cavity package, the CMD328K3 amplifier is an ideal alternative to hybrid amplifiers.
Applications for the CMD328K3 LNA include X-band and Ku-band radar, satellite communications, and electronic defence receivers.
