Positive gain slope amplifier operates from DC to 20 GHz
Unlike most distributed amplifiers, the CMD192 has a positive gain slope with increasing frequency, thus compensating for the higher frequency losses typical of other components in a system. In addition, the use of on-chip tracking circuits ensure consistent performance over temperature and process variation. The device is a 50 Ohm matched design that requires minimal off-chip components to complete the bias network, which is typical of this amplifier topology.
The CMD192 is suitable for microwave radio and VSAT, telecom infrastructure, test instrumentation, and military and space applications.
