2-20 GHz (C, X, Ku Band) Distributed Low Noise Amplifier MMIC

    Key Features

    • Low noise figure
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 QFN package
    • Single positive supply voltage
    • Wide bandwidth
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD233C4 is a wideband GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier housed in a leadless 4x4 mm surface mount package. The CMD233C4 is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small size and low noise figure are needed over a wide bandwidth. At 10 GHz this amplifier delivers greater than 9 dB of gain with a corresponding noise figure of 4.5 dB and an output 1 dB compression point of +20.5 dBm. The CMD233C4 MMIC 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.
