Houston, Tex. Mimix Broadband, Inc. has introduced a two-stage feedback driver amplifier in a 3 x 3-mm surface mount QFN package. The CMM9000-QT buffer amplifier is aimed at a variety of wireless infrastructure, instrumentation, satellite communications and defense applications.
Using 0.50-micron gate length GaAs MESFET device model technology, the CMM9000-QT buffer amplifier covers the 1.5- to 6-GHz frequency bands and achieves a small signal gain of 15 dB, with +15 dBm P1dB across the band. The device includes integrated DC blocking capacitors and RF choke inductors on-chip and is fully matched, eliminating the need for external components.
Mimix performs 100% RF testing on the device. The chip also has surface passivation to protect and provide rugged parts with backside via holes, and gold metallization to allow either a conductive epoxy or eutectic solder die attach process.
Availability: Production quantities are available from stock.
