MACOM launches high-power C-band GaAs MMIC amplifier in plastic packaging

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched a new high-power amplifier suited to C-band radar and communication applications.

The firm says that the MAAP-011027 suits users that need a fully matched, small-size and simplified packaged solution for high-power pulsed applications. Operating over the 5.2-5.9GHz frequency bandwidth, the device is a two-stage, 8W saturated C-band power amplifier with 37% power-added efficiency. Gain is 20dB, while input and output return loss are both 10dB. Saturated output power (Psat) is 39dBm. Packaged in a lead-free 5mm x 5mm 20-lead PQFN, it offers a fully matched solution that can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in high-power pulsed applications.

“The MAAP-011027 belongs to a new family of high-power GaAs MMIC amplifiers that cover L-, S-, C- and X-band,” says product manager Paul Beasly. “These new products offer best-in-class performance for high-power applications while leveraging MACOM’s commercial manufacturing expertise to reduce the size, weight and cost of our customers’ system designs,” he claims.

Production quantities and samples of the MAAP-011027 are available from stock.
