DC-30 GHz (L, S, C, X, Ku, K, Ka Band) Distributed Driver Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Ultra wideband performance
    • High linearity
    • High output power
    • HMC994 replacement
    • Small die size

    Qorvo's CMD292 is wideband GaAs MMIC distributed driver amplifier die which operates from DC to 30 GHz. The amplifier delivers 13 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +27 dBm and output IP3 of 33 dBm at 15 GHz. The CMD292 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD292 provides a unique positive gain slope, with over 2dB increase over the operating frequency range of DC to 30GHz.

    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.
