RFMD Intros High-Power GaN HEMT Power Amplifiers
Sr. Manager, Communications
RFMD’s new RFHA104x series of high-power GaN broadband power
transistors (BPTs) are optimized for military communications, commercial wireless infrastructure, and general
purpose applications. Using an advanced 65 V high power density GaN semiconductor process optimized for high
peak-to-average ratio applications, these high-performance amplifiers achieve high power with high efficiency and
flat gain over a broad frequency range in a single amplifier design. Each is an input-matched GaN transistor
packaged in an air cavity ceramic package providing excellent thermal stability. Ease of integration is
accomplished through the incorporation of simple, optimized, matching networks external to the package that
provide wideband gain and high efficiency, all in a single amplifier ideal for linear correction circuits.
