Mimix Broadband’s two stage 2 to 18 GHz GaAs MMIC low noise amplifier has a small signal gain of 15 dB with a noise figure of 3.8 dB across most of the band. This MMIC uses Mimix Broadband’s 0.15 µm GaAs PHEMT device model technology, and is based upon electron beam lithography to ensure high
repeatability and uniformity
Recent improvements on the CMOS Silicon process introduced many one-chip solutions to the market. DSP, Analog/Digital converter, Digital/Analog converter, Up/Down converter, VCO and PLL Synthesizers are one of those one-chip solutions in the market today. However, CMOS has some drawbacks in higher power levels of 10dBm+ and having a high noise figure.
Mimix Broadband’s 2 to 18 GHz GaAs MMIC distributed low noise amplifier has a small signal gain of 9.0 dB with a noise figure of 4.5 dB across the band.
This MMIC uses Mimix Broadband’s 0.3 µm GaAs PHEMT device model technology, and is based upon optical beam lithography to ensure high repeatability
The Qorvo QPA1022D is a MMIC power amplifier operating from 8.5 – 11 GHz for radar, electronic warfare, and satellite communications applications. Fabricated on Qorvo’s production 0.25 um GaN on SiC process, the amplifier produces greater than 4 W of saturated output power and 24 dB of large-signal gain while achieving greater than 45% power-added efficiency.
The MMA-022025B is a 2 - 20GHz broadband MMIC amplifier with typical 27dBm output power at 1 dB compression point. The
MMIC chip is realized in advanced 0.25um AlGaAs/InGaAs pHEMT technology. The usable frequency range extends to 1
– 22 GHz. With on-chip input/output blocking capacitors and DC supply RF choke circuitry, it only requires simple DC bias
circuits and RF connections for broad range applications
NEC's UPC2711TB and UPC2712TB are Silicon MMIC
Wideband Amplifiers manufactured using NEC's 20 GHz fT
NESATTM III silicon bipolar process. These devices are designed
for use as buffer amps in DBS tuners. The UPC2711/
12TB are pin compatible and have comparable performance
as the larger UPC2711/12T, so they are suitable for use as a
replacement to help reduce system size. These IC's are
housed in a 6 pin super minimold or SOT-363 package.
