6-18 GHz (C, X, Ku Band) Low Phase Noise Amplifier MMIC

    Key Features

    • Low current consumption
    • Pb-free RoHS compliant 4x4 SMT package
    • Wide bandwidth
    • Low Phase Noise
    • Positive bias

    Qorvo's CMD245C4 is a wideband (C, X, Ku, K band) GaAs MMIC low phase noise RF / Microwave amplifier (LPNA) housed in a leadless surface mount (SMT) package that is ideally suited for military, space, and communications systems. At 10 GHz the device delivers 18 dB of gain, a saturated output power of +21 dBm and a noise figure of 4.5 dB. Also with an input signal of 10 GHz the amplifier provides low phase noise performance of -165 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. The CMD245C4 MMIC is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching.

    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.
