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.



MAAP-011027

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."

The table below outlines typical performance:



Production quantities and samples of MAAP-011027 are available from stock.



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.
