MMIC Amplifiers


The MMA-022020B is a 2 - 20GHz broadband MMIC medium power amplifier with 22.5 dBm output power. It 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
The Avago MGA-21108 is a fully integrated GaAs Low Noise Amplifier, LNA, MMIC for use in the 1.5GHz to 8GHz band.

This RF amplifier operates in the DC-20 GHz frequency range and features small die size, a low noise figure, and low current consumption. This amplifier is ideal for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military and space applications.

High definition display such as full HD, Plasma TV and LED TV is currently expanding its market share in individual homes. HD quality programs and contents are also broadcasted through various channels by satellite TV, HDTV, VOD and 3D TV. CATV cables do not only deliver cable TV, but also two-way broadband internet to each subscriber. All these contents require higher definition quality for better viewing experience.

Mimix Broadband’s two stage 21.0-24.0 GHz GaAs MMIC power amplifier is optimized for linear operation with a third order intercept point of +39.0 dBm. 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

This low noise amplifier (LNA) features a small size and low power consumption, making it ideal for point to point/multipoint radios, military and space communications, and other EW and communications systems.

Microwave Technology, Inc (MwT), an IXYS Corporation, announces a new family of MMICs for WiMAX(802.16 d/e), WiFi, and wireless infrastructure applications
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.
