    Key Features

    • High linearity
    • Low current consumption
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 mm SMT package
    • Wide bandwidth
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD187C4 is a wideband RF / Microwave driver amplifier MMIC housed in a leadless surface mount (SMT) package that is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small size and high linearity are indispensable design requirements. At 10 GHz this amplifier delivers greater than 22 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +13 dBm and an output IP3 of 30 dBm. The CMD187C4 MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. This amplifier is the perfect alternative to higher cost 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.
