26-35 GHz (K, Ka, Q Band) Balanced Driver Amplifier MMIC

    Key Features

    • Excellent return losses
    • High gain
    • Low noise and high linearity
    • Small die size
    • Wide bandwidth
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD243 is a wideband GaAs MMIC driver amplifier ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems where small size and high linearity are critical design requirements. At 30 GHz the device delivers 15.5 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +21 dBm and noise figure of 4.4 dB. The CMD243 amplifier MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD243 also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
