Cree/Wolfspeed Releases X-Band Radar Devices

News

Availability of four new GaN on SiC MMIC devices enable designers to improve RF system size, weight, and power

Cree/Wolfspeed is introducing four new multi-stage GaN on SiC MMIC devices, extending its range of RF solutions for a diverse array of pulsed and continuous wave X-band phased array applications, including marine, weather surveillance and emerging unmanned aerial system radars.

Using Wolfspeed GaN on SiC technology, these new devices deliver high power-added efficiency (PAE) in small, industry standard packages that allow designers to achieve maximum performance with smaller systems that consume less power.

“Cree/Wolfspeed's new X-band offerings provide today's design engineers with a wide breadth of options for systems requiring high efficiency transmit solutions in challenging form factors such as those needed for active phased array radar applications,” said Jim Milligan, senior director foundry, aerospace and defense at Cree l Wolfspeed. “Using Wolfspeed GaN on SiC solutions enables them to meet the critical RF system requirements related to smaller size, lighter weight, and higher power (SWaP) while reaching new levels of performance.”

The X-band portfolio offers solutions that support multiple stages of gain, thereby reducing the number of devices needed in a transmit chain. They come in a variety of power levels to optimise system performance and are offered in multiple platforms to optimize system architecture. See Table 1 for more product details and performance data.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
