Millitech GaN Amplifiers Deliver 2.5W

E-band and W-Band power amps offer up to 20 percent power-added efficiency 

Millitech, a microwave brand of Smiths Interconnect, has announced the release of new GaN based power E-Band and W-Band amplifiers with high output power and power-added efficiency (PAE).

Offering up to 2.5W of output power and up to 20 percent PAE, typical gain figures range from 15 to 40 dB.  Single device models are available with nearly 1W of output power, or 2-way and 4-way solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) with up to 2.5W of saturated output power are available. Higher power outputs are also available.

Additionally, each amplifier in the series come standard with internal voltage regulation, bias-sequencing circuitry, and reverse voltage protection.

These GaN PAs can be used in applications ranging from e-band radio, remote sensing, as high power millimeter-wave sources, and are high enough quality for test and measurement applications.

The high output power eliminates the need for comparatively large and expensive combiners and waveguide interconnect necessary for less powerful amplifiers.
