Custom MMIC (Westford, MA) has added a new 6 – 11 GHz low noise amplifier to their growing line of high quality products. Ideal of microwave radios and C- and X-band applications where small size and low power consumption are needed, the CMD186P3 is also suitable for point-to-point radios and phased-array radar applications. The 50 ohm matched design of the CMD186P3 amplifier does not require any external components aside from the usual bypass capacitors. Features include:

  • An ultra-low noise figure of 2.1 dB, delivering greater than 18 dB of gain.
  • Corresponding output 1 dB compression point of +16.5 dBm.
  • RoHS-compliant housing.
  • 3x3 mm QFN plastic surface mount package, requires a single supply voltage of +5 V at 78 mA.
