MACOM adds 100MHz-3GHz two-stage, 1W driver amplifier to MMIC portfolio

MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) has launched the MAAP-011232, a two-stage, 1W driver amplifier featuring gain shut off and operating from 100MHz to 3GHz. The device is suited to both driver and power requirements across a broad range of applications, including land-mobile-radio, military communications, sensors, telemetry, test & measurement and satellite communications.

The MAAP-011232 features a typical gain of 23dB and up 40% power-added efficiency. The device can be operated at a drain supply voltage between 5V and 9V and consumes less than 300mA at a maximum output power of 1W. The MAAP-011232 is fully matched while operating in the 100MHz to 1GHz frequency range and can be tuned with input matched to perform up to 3GHz. The device is offered in a 3mm 16-lead PQFN plastic package.

"The MAAP-011232 was designed to offer customers excellent power and drive performance over a broad frequency range," says Paul Beasly, product manager, RF and Microwave. "The high gain and enable function can replace the need for additional gain blocks and/or attenuators in customers' systems, which makes the device an ideal candidate for applications that require a small footprint and surface-mount solution," he adds.  

Production quantities and samples of MAAP-011232 are available from stock. MACOM is featuring its MMIC portfolio in booth 939 at IEEE's International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2016 in San Francisco (22-27 May).
