Macom launches High Power DC - 22GHz MMIC Amplifiers

MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248 offer fully matched solutions for driver and power applications

Macom Technology has introduced the MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248, distributed power amplifiers operating from DC to 22 GHz.

These amplifiers can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in higher power applications, and are  suited for test & measurement, electronic counter measures (ECM) and radar applications.

The MAAP-011247, a 2W amplifier, features 12dB of linear gain, 33dBm of saturated output power and what is claimed to be industry's highest output power for a MMIC amplifier covering DC-22 GHz. The device is fully matched across the band and provides 42 dBm of OIP3 linearity.

The MAAP-011248, a 1W amplifier, offers 12.5dB of linear gain, 30dBm of saturated output power and can be operated over a drain voltage of 9 to 12V for optimisation of RF power versus DC power dissipation.

 Both devices offer customers an integrated temperature-compensated output power detector, and are available in bare die or in 5mm QFN packages.

"The MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248 are the first of four new distributed amplifiers designed to deliver high gain and power in compact bare die or QFN packaged solutions," said Graham Board, senior director, multi-market products, at Macom."
