CMD173P4

    DC-20 GHz (L, S, C, X, Ku, K Band) Broad Range Distributed Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Low current consumption
    • Low noise figure
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 QFN package
    • Ultra wideband performance
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD173P4 is a wideband GaAs MMIC distributed RF / Microwave amplifier housed in a leadless 4x4 mm plastic surface mount (SMT) package. The amplifier operates from UHF into K band (20 GHz) and delivers greater than 15 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +18 dBm and noise figure of 2 dB at 10 GHz. The CMD173P4 Distributed Amplifier MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. This MMIC design is the perfect low cost alternative to hybrid amplifiers.

    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.
