    • Ultra low noise figure
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD157 is a broadband GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier ideally suited for EW and communications systems where small size and low power consumption are critical design requirements. The broadband device delivers greater than 25 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +10 dBm and a noise figure of 1.5 dB. The CMD157 MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD157 amplifier is the perfect alternative to costly hybrid amplifiers.
