M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New 1 Watt Linear
RF Driver Amplifier for MILCOM and Infrastructure Applications

May 23, 2012 Press Release

M/A-COM Technology Solutions

MAAM-010617 is a 30dBm GaAs MMIC amplifier-- Amplifier is Tunable over a Wide Frequency Range and Exhibits High Linearity
Lowell, MA, May 23rd, 2012 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new RF Driver Amplifier for MILCOM and infrastructure applications.
The MAAM-010617 is a 30dBm GaAs MMIC amplifier which exhibits high linearity over a wide input power range. Biased with a single +5V supply, the MAAM-010617  has a quiescent current of 420mA. The amplifier is tunable over the wide frequency range of 30 MHz to 4000 MHz, in order to optimize its performance based on the end application. Packaged in a lead-free SOT-89 package, the MAAM-010617 is fabricated using an HBT process to realize a constant high linearity over a wide input power and frequency range.  The operating bandwidth of this device can be optimized with selective off-chip components.
“The high linearity and frequency range of this part make it an ideal gain block in linear systems,” said Kevin Harrington, Aerospace and Defense Marketing Manager.  “The SOT-89 standard package is a good thermally efficient package which is easy to handle during assembly for our customers.”
The table below outlines typical part number performance:
