DC-18 GHz Low Phase Noise Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Wide bandwidth
    • Low phase noise
    • Positive gain slope
    • High output power
    • Small die size

    Qorvo's CMD326 is a wideband GaAs MMIC low phase noise amplifier ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems. At 10 GHz, the device delivers 14.4 dB of gain, has a saturated output power of +24.4 dBm, and has a noise figure of 3.5 dB. Also, with an input signal of 6 GHz, the amplifier has a very low additive phase noise of -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. The CMD326 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching. The CMD326 offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
