16-24 GHz (Ku, K Band) Driver Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Wideband performance
    • High gain
    • High linearity
    • HMC498 replacement
    • Small die size

    Qorvo's CMD291 is a wideband GaAs MMIC driver amplifier die which operates from 16 to 24 GHz. The broadband device is ideally suited for applications requiring high dynamic range. The CMD291 delivers 23 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +25.5 dBm and output IP3 of 32 dBm at 20 GHz. The amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD291 offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
