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.
