Macom Expands MMIC Range With Two Stage Driver Amp

New 1W device delivers high gain across the 100MHz to 3GHz frequency range

Macom has introduced the MAAP-011232, a two-stage, 1W driver amplifier featuring gain shut off and operating from 100 MHz to 3 GHz. This device is suited to both driver and power requirements across a broad range of applications, including land-mobile-radio, military communications, sensors, telemetry, test and measurement and satellite communications.

The MAAP-011232 features a typical gain of 23dB and up 40 percent power added efficiency. The device can be operated between 5V to 9V and consumes less than 300mA at maximum output power of 1W. The MAAP-011232 device is fully matched while operating in the 100 MHz to 1GHz frequency range and can be tuned with input matched to perform up to 3 GHz. The device is offered in a 3mm 16 lead PQFN plastic package.

"The MAAP-011232 was designed to offer customers excellent power and drive performance over a broad frequency range," said Paul Beasly, product manager, RF and Microwave, Macom.

"The high gain and enable function can replace the need for additional gain blocks and/or attenuators in customers' systems, which makes the device an ideal candidate for applications that require a small footprint and surface-mount solution."

Macom will be featuring its MMIC portfolio next week at IMS, May 22nd-27th in San Francisco, California. 

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.
