Wolfspeed to show GaN technology at MILCOM 2017
Latest GaN-on-SiC devices target military communications and counter-IED designs
Wolfspeed, a division of Cree, is highlighting the role played by its GaN-on-SiC RF devices in military communications at MILCOM 2017.
Wolfspeed's RF devices support mobile military communications and counter-IED requirements, specifically in the design and development of more efficient broadband power amplifiers for military wireless communications and electronics warfare (EW) applications.
"Wolfspeed's GaN RF devices provide a key enabling technology for military systems designed to counter the threat from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the battlefield, delivering a combination of power and efficiency performance that cannot be achieved with any other competing technology," said Jim Milligan, VP, RF and Microwave Products.
Wolfspeed is a silver sponsor of the MILCOM 2017, a conference for military communications professionals involved in command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, scheduled for October 23 "“ 25, 2017 in Baltimore, MD.
Wolfspeed engineers will be demonstrating their latest best-in-class GaN-on-SiC devices for an extensive range of RF power amplifier applications for military communications systems and electronic warfare systems, as well as the company's GaN-on-SiC foundry services.
