    • Wide bandwidth
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD232C3 is a wideband GaAs MMIC driver amplifier housed in a leadless 3x3 mm surface mount (SMT) package. The CMD232C3 is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small size and high linearity are critical design requirements. At 6 GHz the device delivers greater than 15 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +17 dBm and an output IP3 of 23 dBm. The CMD232C3 amplifier is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching.
