MACOM launches high power C-band GaAs MMIC amplifier

M/A-COM Technology Solutions has today announced the introduction of the MAAP-011027, a new high power amplifier that is specifically targeted at C-Band radar and communication applications. The MAAP-011027 is ideal for customers who need a fully matched, small size and simplified packaged solution for high power pulsed applications.

Operating over the 5.2-5.9 GHz frequency bandwidth, the device is a two stage, 8 W saturated C-band power amplifier with 37% power added efficiency. The MAAP-011027 is packaged in a lead free 5mm x 5mm 20 lead PQFN and offers a fully matched solution which can be used by the customer as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in high power pulsed applications.

Paul Beasly, Product Manager at M/A-COM Technology Solutions, commented: “The MAAP-011027 belongs to a new family of high power GaAs MMIC amplifiers that cover L-, S-, C- and X-Band. 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.”
