14-18 GHz (Ku Band) GaN Power Amplifier MMIC

    Key Features

    • Excellent efficiency
    • High linearity
    • High Power
    • Positive gain slope
    • Small die size

    Qorvo's CMD216 is a 5.6 W GaN MMIC power amplifier die ideally suited for Ku band communications systems where high power and high linearity are crucial design requirements. This amplifier delivers greater than 16 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +37 dBm and a saturated output power of +38 dBm at 32% power added efficiency. The CMD216 amp is a 50 ohm matched design eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD216 MMIC also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
