Linear power amplifiers target point to point radios

Designed for use in point to point radios in cellular backhaul applications, the MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 packaged linear power amplifiers have been announced by MACOM Technology Solutions. The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 operate over 7.1-7.9GHz and 7.7-8.5GHz, respectively, and are intended for 7 and 8GHz radio applications.

The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 feature a Third Order Intercept Point (OIP3) of 46.5dBm and greater than 35.5dBm saturated output power. The MAAP-011161 boasts 22dB small signal gain, while the MAAP-011193 provides 20dB small signal gain. These power amplifier MMICs come in an air cavity 7mm surface mount package with a copper coin paddle for excellent thermal performance. The devices include on-chip ESD protection structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease the implementation and volume assembly of the packaged part, and are RoHS Compliant.

Stuart Cornelius, Product Manager, Carrier Networks, MACOM, commented: “This pair of MMIC power amplifiers is a great addition to MACOM’s existing portfolio. We believe the gain, output power and Third Order Intercept performance make these products suitable solutions for 7 and 8GHz cellular backhaul point to point radio applications.”

Production quantities and samples of the MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 are available from stock.
