RFHIC Press Release - February 18, 2010

RFHIC's Molded Styled Power Amplifier (GaN on SiC)
Pumps Out 20 W Covering 20 MHz-1000 MHz

How small can a GaN power amplifier be?
 RFHICKorea (February 18th, 2010)– RFHIC, a manufacturer of active RF & MW components and hybrids with a heavy focus on GaN and GaAs technology, introduced a molded styled power amplifier (GaN on SiC) generating 20 W and covering 20-1000 MHz. RWS05020-10 is based on GaN on SiC Transistor, promising a solid reliability at high temperature; it provides a 36 dB of Gain and a typical 43 dBm @ P3dB with 50% efficiency. Moreover, the physical size of RWS05020-10 is only 2.1” x 1” x 0.5” which is much smaller than an Apple’s new iPod nano or a typical business card.

RFHIC RWS05020-10 GaN on SiCGaN device is actively evolving, improving reliability while becoming more cost-effective. RFHIC have been developing more thermally robust designs, and the substrate material has been migrated from Si to SiC, enhancing reliability and efficiency. Nowadays, high efficiency directly translates to “Green” which is one of main concerns for policy makers and our end users. End users are also calling for smaller systems, of course, without sacrificing performance. Especially for sub L-band frequencies, there are many obstacles to overcome in order to make power amplifiers small.

Dr. Samuel Cho, Chief Technical Officer of RFHIC Corporation, said, “Through our engineers’ hard work and technical breakthrough we are proud to announce that RWS05020-10 is one of our answers to customers’ very need. RWS05020-10 is a miniaturized wideband amplifier, a newly developed hybrid. We incorporated Pin Type for DC and RF port to make this product easy to use. It has a bolted down structure and operates on 28 V with 51 dBm @ OIP3. We believe our military, telecommunication, and broadcasting customers can set themselves apart from the competition if they utilize these kinds of RFHIC products.”

RFHIC is a manufacturer of active RF components and modules primarily for the wired and wireless telecommunication and broadcasting markets. As a No.1 active component manufacturer in Korea and expanding customer support across the world, RFHIC is already serving component communication equipments in over 45 international countries, and over 1000 customers.

RFHIC was founded in 1999, and has been pioneering in the telecommunication and CATV component markets with new technology or new product features ever since. Major areas of business include Base Stations, Repeaters, Cable Networks, LTE, WiMAX, UMTS, Digital TV, Radar, Medical, Military, and Test Equipments for infrastructure markets. RFHIC is head quartered in Suwon, South Korea, and its US R&D office is located in Cary, NC, USA.
