Macom Adds 4W Linear Power Amplifiers
7 and GHz MMICs target point-to-point radios in cellular backhaul applications
Macom, a supplier of analogue RF, microwave and optical chips, has announced the new MAAP-011161 and the MAAP-011193, two packaged linear MMIC power amplifiers designed for point to point radios in cellular backhaul applications.
The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 operate over 7.1 to 7.9 GHz and 7.7 to 8.5 GHz respectively, and are intended for 7 and 8GHz radio applications.
The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 feature a Third Order Intercept Point (OIP3) of 46.5 dBm and greater than 35.5 dBm saturated output power. The MAAP-011161 boasts 22 dB small signal gain, while the MAAP-011193 provides 20 dB small signal gain.
These power amplifier MMICs come in an air cavity 7 mm surface mount package with a copper coin paddle for excellent thermal performance. The devices include on-chip ESD protection structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease the implementation and volume assembly of the packaged part, and are RoHS Compliant.
"This pair of MMIC power amplifiers is a great addition to Macom's existing portfolio," said Stuart Cornelius, product manager, carrier networks, Macom. "We believe the gain, output power and Third Order Intercept performance make these products ideal solutions for 7 GHz and 8 GHz cellular backhaul point to point radio 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.
