Pasternack Launches New 2 - 6 GHz GaN Power Amplifier
50W device makes port matching easier over wider bandwidths using lower loss components
Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has announced a new 50W GaN coaxial power amplifier (PA) operating in the popular 2 to 6 GHz frequency band.
According to the company, the PE15A5025's compact and rugged design delivers high levels of output power and efficiency and has the advantage of high output load impedance that makes port matching easier over wider bandwidths using lower loss components.
The new GaN power amplifier offers 50dB of small signal gain with a saturated output power level of +47dBm typical and 30 percent power added efficiency (PAE). While generating 50W of saturated output power under worst case conditions, the output harmonic response is -1dBc and spurious levels are kept at -70 dBc.
The amplifier requires a +28 Vdc power supply and is unconditionally stable. Other desired features include integrated voltage regulation, bias sequencing circuitry, DC control TTL logic, DC current monitoring, and over temperature shutdown at +90Â°C baseplate temperature for added reliability.
Applications for the PE15A5025 amplifier include commercial and military radar, jamming systems, medical imaging, wireless communications and electronic warfare.
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.
