Abstract

This work presents a wideband amplifier, in 12–19 GHz frequency range, with noise figure lower than 1.35 and 26 dB of gain developed in the frame of European Component Initiative program, supported by European Space Agency. By using a flexible biasing, this amplifier allows us to reach a significant linearity, output power at 1 dB compression up to 19 dBm, or to reduce the DC consumption close to 210 mW. This versatility implies that a user has a low-noise amplifier) or medium power amplifier in a single chip. The D01PHS process, from OMMIC foundry, has been chosen in order to realize this MMIC, thanks to linearity capability, and also thanks to a significant potential for low-noise amplification.
