MACOM Introduces 6W Ka-Band Power Amplifier
24dB gain and high linearity suit high data density satellite communications and 5G Radio Access Networks
MACOM has introduced a high linearity 6W power amplifier, suited for Ka-Band high data density satellite communications and 5G radio access networks.
The MAAP-011140-DIE is offered as a bare die, delivering 24dB of linear gain, 6W of saturated output power and 23 percent power-added efficiency.
"The MAAP-011140-DIE offers a unique combination of high power, linearity and efficiency in a small form factor that is ideally suited to systems requiring highly efficient Satcom transmitter solutions," said Paul Beasly, product manager. "In conjunction with the recently announced 4W Ka-Band PA, MAAP-011139-DIE this new 6W device broadens MACOM's Ka-Band power amplifier family."
The device provides greater than 25dBm POUT/tone while maintaining IM3 levels of 30dBc. The efficiency performance allows customers to operate remote VSAT terminals with lower power consumption and higher performance than competing alternative offerings. The 6W PSAT enables greater transmission power and signal strength performance in critical military or civilian datalink applications.
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
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.
