A broadband, packaged LNA provides high gain from 6 to 20 GHz.
The model CMD194C3 low-noise amplifier (LNA) from Custom MMIC provides more than 20-dB small-signal gain from 6 to 20 GHz with better than +15-dBm output power at 1-dB compression. The LNA, which is supplied in a leadless, RoHS-compliant 3 x 3 mm ceramic surface-mount QFN package, boasts a noise figure of only 2 dB across its frequency range. Suited for broadband communications and electronic-warfare (EW) applications, the amplifier typically draws 120 mA current from a +4-VDC supply. It delivers +16.5-dBm saturated output power across the frequency range.
