Houston, TexasMimix Broadband, Inc. introduced a gallium arsenide (GaAs) three stage driver amplifier with a self-biased, single supply design. Using 0.25 um optical etch-stop pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) device model technology, this driver amplifier, identified as CMM1118, covers the 11 to 20 GHz frequency bands. The CMM1118 provides 20 dB gain and delivers +14 dBm output power at 1-dB compression.
With on-chip ESD protection, the CMM1118 is assembled in a low cost, surface mount 3mm x 3mm QFN package. The 16 terminal plastic package is also lead-free. The device is well suited for wireless communications applications such as millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, local multipoint distribution services (LMDS) and SATCOM.
