DC-40 GHz (L, S, C, X, Ku, K, Ka, Q, U Band) Distributed Amplifier MMIC

    Key Features

    • Excellent return losses
    • Low current consumption
    • Positive gain slope
    • Small die size
    • Ultra wideband performance

    Qorvo's CMD242 is wideband GaAs MMIC distributed low noise amplifier die which operates from DC to 40 GHz. The amplifier delivers greater than 10.5 dB of gain with a corresponding noise figure of 4.4 dB and output 1 dB compression point of 18.0 dBm at 20 GHz. The CMD242 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD242 MMIC also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
