MACOM Markets `highest Power` Full E-band GaAs Power Amplifier

The company's new MAAP-011106 E-band power amplifier is ideally suited for small cell wireless backhaul infrastructure, enabling data gher to accommodate surging data demand



M/A-COM Technology Solutions has iintroduced what it says is the industry’s highest power, full E-Band power amplifier, delivering typical Psat of 25.5 dBm for the 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz frequency ranges in a single product.



Optimised to enable fibre-caliber data rates over long distances across 10 GHz of available E-Band spectrum, MACOM’s new E-Band power amplifiers equip designers of point to point transceivers to maximise design flexibility by eliminating the requirement for two different amplifiers to be used to cover the full 71-86 GHz E-Band frequency band.

MACOM’s new MAAP-011106 E-Band power amplifier is ideally suited for small cell wireless backhaul infrastructure, enabling data rates of 1 Gbps and higher to accommodate surging data demand, particularly in densely populated metro environments.

Providing an output power for high-frequency E-Band operation, MACOM’s new amplifier offers a broad bandwidth and can reduce transceiver design and manufacturing costs via the consolidation of PAs within compact, multi-band systems.

The E-Band power amplifier includes an integrated power detector and supports 20 dB of small signal gain with variable gain control for flexible performance tuning. Each device is RF tested to ensure performance compliance, and is fabricated using an efficient pHEMT process.

“MACOM’s MMIC design expertise and decades-long innovation in point to point wireless backhaul technology has distinguished us as a leading supplier of power amplifiers across every frequency band," says David Richardson, Product Line Director, Wireless, MACOM. “With the introduction of our E-Band power amplifier, we’re making it easier for transceiver designers to achieve high linear power and gain control over the full E-Band spectrum, while including the convenience and performance of an integrated output power detector."

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.
