6 - 18 GHz Low Noise Amplifier

    Key Features

    • Ultra Low Noise Figure
    • High Gain Broadband Performance
    • Single supply voltage: 3.0V @ 52 mA
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 3 x 3 mm QFN package

    The CMD328K3 is a broadband MMIC low noise amplifier housed in a leadless 3x3 mm plastic surface mount air cavity package. The CMD328K3 is ideally suited for EW and communications systems where small size and low power consumption are needed. The broadband device delivers greater than 27 dB of gain with a corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +12 dBm and a noise figure of 1.4 dB. The CMD328K3 is a 50 ohm matched design thereby eliminating the need for external DC blocks and RF port matching. The CMD328K3 amplifier is the perfect alternative to costly hybrid amplifiers.
