Wideband noise amplifier is in die form

Designed for microwave radio and VSAT, telecomms infrastructure, test instrumentation, military and space, and fibre optics, the CMD206 is a DC to 50GHz distributed low noise amplifier in die form.

Available from Custom MMIC, it has a noise figure of less than 3.5dB, a gain of greater than 11dB, and an output 1dB compression point of +12dBm at 30GHz. The amplifier requires an all-positive bias of only 4V at 32mA (drain), 3V (gate).

An external drain bias network and input blocking capacitor are required for proper operation. The die offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection, claims the company.

The benefits of replacing plain old paper with e-paper displays in automotive assembly plants
Efficiency is at the heart of automation, and that is nowhere more apparent than in the manufacture of automobiles. The Ford Motor Company is widely credited with inventing the moving assembly line, but the concept of moving the assembly, rather than the worker, dates back centuries.
