Breakthrough Ultra Low Noise Amplifier Has 0.6-db Noise Figure and Covers 2 to 6 GHz Frequency Range

27 August 2018

Custom MMIC announces the release of a new GaAs Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) MMIC with broadband noise Source: Custom MMICSource: Custom MMICfigure performance previously only achievable with discrete FET designs. The CMD283C3, with 0.6-decibel (db) noise figure, is the first in a family of new Ultra Low Noise Amplifiers.

The CMD283C3 LNA covers 2 to 6 GHz with high midband gain of 27 db and output P1dB of 16 decibel-milliwatts (dBm). The MMIC is housed in a leadless 3 mm x 3 mm surface mount package. It operates from a bias supply of +2 to +5 volts and draws a nominal 42 milliamperes. The CMD283C3 is ideally suited for S and C band receivers requiring excellent sensitivity, and as a replacement for discrete FET LNA solutions.
