Qorvo's CMD246C4 is a wideband (C, X, Ku, K band) GaAs MMIC low phase noise RF / Microwave amplifier (LPNA) housed in a leadless surface mount (SMT) package that is ideally suited for military, space and communications systems. At 16 GHz the device delivers 17 dB of gain, a saturated output power of +18 dBm and a noise figure of 5 dB. Also with an input signal of 10 GHz the amplifier provides low phase noise performance of -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. The CMD246C4 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching.

This product is included in our Keysight PathWave System Design (SystemVue) and PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys) compatible component libraries.
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.
