    Key Features

    • High linearity
    • Small die size
    • Ultra low noise performance

    Qorvo's CMD163 is a high dynamic range GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier ideally suited for military, space and communications systems where small size and high linearity are critical design requirements. The device is optimized for 21 GHz and delivers greater than 24 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +19 dBm and noise figure of 1.3 dB. The CMD163 LNA MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD163 offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection. This amplifier is the perfect alternative to higher cost hybrid amplifiers.
