    Key Features

    • All positive supply voltages
    • High linearity
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 QFN package
    • Ultra low noise performance

    Qorvo's CMD163C4 is a high dynamic range GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier housed in a leadless 4x4 mm surface mount (SMT) package. The CMD163C4 is ideally suited for military, space and communications systems where small size and high linearity are needed. The device is optimized for 21 GHz and delivers greater than 23 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm and a noise figure of 1.7 dB. The CMD163C4 amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
