Northrop Grumman’s first three entries in their GaN MMIC Amplifiers have been developed for defense and commercial ground satellite communications terminal markets and the commercial wireless infrastructure market.
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.
This front end module (FEM) covers the 4.9 GHz to 5.85 GHz frequency range and features an integrated 4.9GHz to 5.85GHz amplifier, SPDT Tx/Rx Switch, LNA with bypass, and power detector coupler. It’s ideal for ISM band and WiFi applications, and for use with portable battery powered equipment, and WiFi access points, gateways, and set top boxes.
Cobham MAL Ltd. has retained a thin film processing capability at its Milton Keynes facility for over 25 years. This well developed and regularly used process has been exploited by Cobham in its microwave assemblies and has been qualified into a number of aerospace, defense, communications and space products.
Skyworks Solutions offers a select group of their most popular PIN, limiter, Schottky, and tuning varactor diodes that are designed to meet demanding applications, and are available to ship from stock for prototype or high-volume production.
Custom MMIC’s CMD158P3 is a broadband MMIC driver amplifier covering the 6-14 GHz frequency range. It features high output power, low current consumption, a single supply voltage of +5.0 V @ 95 mA, and a Pb-free RoHs compliant QFN package.
The Mini-Circuits PHA-1+ Ultra High Dynamic Range MMIC Amplifier supports low intermodulation amplification over the broad frequency range of 50 MHz to 6 GHz. This design provides a unique combination of high output IP3 (typically +42 dBm) while maintaining a noise figure less than 3 dB up to 4 GHz and typical gain of 14 dB at 2 GHz.
Avago Technologies’ 37 - 40 GHz 1W Power Amplifier (MMIC Die): AMMC-6442 is a 1W power amplifier MMIC die for use in transmitters that operate at frequencies between 37 GHz and 40 GHz. Typical applications include point-to-point radio systems and millimeter – wave communications.
