Westford, MA — Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits, has introduced the CMD172, a new Voltage-Variable Attenuator (VVA) in die form operating from 18 to 40GHz. Fabricated in GaAs with a small footprint, the CMD172 is a wideband absorptive VVA die that uses a single DC control voltage between -3V and 0V to vary the RF signal level over a 37dB dynamic range. The insertion loss of the CMD172 is only 1.6dB. The GaAs MMIC also offers full passivation for increased reliability and moisture protection.
