mmTron Introduces 2 To 20 GHz High OIP2 GaAs MMIC Distributed PA
July 1, 2022

mmTron Inc., a leading provider of mmwave Custom MMICs and integrated transceiver modules, has developed TMC201, a distributed linear amplifier (PA) for commercial, industrial, space, and military applications from 2 to 20 GHz.

Based on mmTron linear GaAs technology, the monolithic-microwave integrated-circuit (MMIC) distributed amplifier has 18dB of gain, delivers +26 dBm typical output power at 1-dB compression (P1dB), 2 dB of Noise Figure, and 39 dBm OIP3 through 12 GHz and typically +23 dBm through 20 GHz. The TMC201 MMIC features impressive gain and gains flatness over its broad bandwidth across temperatures -55 to +85°C, with a typical temperature-dependent gain variation of less than 0.03 dB/°C.

The TMC201 is designed for excellent OIP2 making it ideal for applications in Electronic Warfare, Broadband Commercial Wireless, and Optical Communications Systems as well as in Military Systems.

The TMC201 distributed amplifier is internally matched to 50 ohms and is unconditionally stable. It has typical input and output return loss of 15dB. It operates with typical drain voltages of +5 VDC and a typical supply current of 180 mA.

TMC201 is supplied as a RoHS-compliant die measuring 2 x 1.5 x 0.1 mm. The MMIC amplifier is rated for storage temperatures from -65 to +150°C. It is 100% DC and RF tested and visually inspected to MIL-STD-883, Method 2010 requirements.
