Small Size: 39x35 mils
Directly Cascadable
Single Power Supply


Mimix Broadband's CMM-9 is a 2 to 9 GHz GaAs MMIC 
amplifier. It is a two-stage feedback design which provides 
high gain and good power from a single power supply. 
Applications include oscillator buffers, RF and IF gain blocks 
and driver amplifiers.
The CMM-9 is a very small chip which provides 13 dB of gain 
and 17 dBm of power from a 6 volt supply. The chip is 
directly cascadable with no additional components. The 
circuit’s self-biasing feature provides excellent performance 
from a 5 to 7 volt supply. Care must be taken to isolate the 
input from the external DC voltages.
Mimix MMICs are fabricated on ion-implanted GaAs material 
with gold-based metalization. The FET gates are sub-half 
micron, tee cross-section construction. Air bridges are used 
for top level interconnection. Silicon nitride serves as 
capacitor dielectric and surface passivation. Mesa resistors 
are used for feedback and bias function.
The CMM-9 is available in chip form. It can be screened to 
meet commercial, military Hi-Rel or space grade reliability 
requirements. Custom wafer qualification for special 
electrical and/or reliability requirements is also available.
