MACOM releases high power C-Band GaAs MMIC power amplifier

The 8W plastic packaging power amplifier operating between the 5.2 - 5.9 GHz frequency band offers customers a small sized, fully matched solution
M/A-COM Technology Solutions has launched a new high power amplifier that is ideally suited for C-Band radar and communication applications.


The MAAP-011027 is ideal for customers who need a fully matched, small size and simplified packaged solution for high power pulsed applications.

Operating over the 5.2 - 5.9 GHz frequency bandwidth, the device is a two stage, 8 W saturated C-band power amplifier with 37 percent power added efficiency.

The MAAP-011027 is packaged in a lead free 5mm x 5mm 20 lead PQFN and offers a fully matched solution which can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in high power pulsed applications.

“The MAAP-011027 belongs to a new family of high power GaAs MMIC amplifiers that cover L-, S-, C- and X-Band,”says Paul Beasly , Product Manager. “These new products offer best-in-class performance for high power applications while leveraging MACOM’s commercial manufacturing expertise to reduce the size, weight and cost of our customers’ system designs.”
