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. 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
