Broadband GaN MMIC Power Amplifier for 32V C-IED Applications

Using Wolfspeed's GaN technology the CMPA2060035F provides a compact solution for C-IED (counter-improvised explosive devices) applications spanning 2.0 -6.0 GHz. With a fully matched 50 ohm multi stage MMIC housed in a compact 0.5in leaded package system complexity can be reduced while maintaining competitive performance. Applications include C-IED and ISM.

Mid Ku-Band GaN MMIC PA for SatCom Applications

With 500 MHz video bandwidth the CMPA1D1E080F provides an industry leading and reliable solution for tube replacements for satellite communication. The three-stage design provides ample gain while maintain linearity across the band. Applications include satellite communications and sadio links.

63W avg, 3.6-3.8 GHz High Efficiency Doherty GaN Transistor

Designed for use in Band 43 cellular systems, this component is the highest power and efficiency 3.5 GHz 40W solution on the market. Applications include: ellular base station transmitter amplifiers.

Broadband GaN MMIC Power Amplifier for 28V X-Band Radar Applications

With a three stage design the CMPA901A035F provides a high gain and output power solution at x-band using Wolfspeed's industry leading GaN technology. The high PAE at these frequencies combined with a ceramic package allows the flexibility for this device to operate CW for applications outside radar. Applications include: X-band military radar, marine radar, weather radar and medical applications.

120W Multi-Stage Application Fixture for S-Band Radar

With a thermally capable package the new CGHV35120F allows the end user to operate the device at high case temperatures (85C) while still meeting output power and efficiency requirements for air and naval based S-band radar systems. In conjunction with the CMPA2735015S the overall gain from driver to output stage is well over 45dB and with the pre-driver operating at 50V overall system complexity and size can be reduced. Applications include S-band radar.

Troposcatter Tactical Radio Reference Design

The CGHV1F025S-AMP4 application fixture combines two surface mount unmatched devices to provide over 50W of power from 4.4 – 5.0 GHz. With measured EVM less than 3 percent under OQPSK signal the fixture is able to meet harsh linearity requirements for Troposcatter tactical radio applications. Applications include satellite communications and radio links.
