The wideband operation, low noise figure, low current consumption, excellent return loss, and compact size of this distributed amplifier device suit it for use in L-, S-, C-, X-, Ku-, and K-band wideband radar, broadband microwave/millimeter wave communications, SATCOM, and test and measurement instrumentation applications.

 

The CMD241P4 exhibits gain greater than 13 dB with a low noise figure of 2.3 dB. Both the gain and noise figure of this distributed amplifier are stable over temperature, from -55 to +85C. The CMD241P4 demonstrates a 1 dB compression point beyond +21 dBm at 11 GHz and an output IP3 of +28 dBm, operating off a positive 3 to 8V supply, with a current draw of only 74 mA. The input return loss is typically 13 dB, and output return loss of 15 dB.

 

The distributed amplifier comes in a 4 x 4 mm QFN plastic package. Also incorporated into the design of this MMIC is a 50 Ohm matched impedance at the input and output ports, which removes the need for both external DC blocks and RF matching.
