-- New 1.2-Watt GaAs Power Amplifier Boasts High Linearity
Lowell, MA, February 2, 2012 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high
performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new power amplifier for point-to-point radio
MAAP-008924 is a 3-stage, high linearity 1.2 W GaAs power amplifier. Packaged in a 5 mm, 20-Lead PQFN, the
amplifier is fully matched to 50 ohms on both the input and output.
MAAP-008924 provides a high output IP3 while maintaining low DC power consumption”, said Jack Redus, Product
Manager. “This power amplifier is an excellent choice for 10, 11, and 13 GHz point-to-point radio transceivers for
cellular backhaul applications.”
Operating between the 10 GHz to 13.3 GHz frequency range, the
MAAP-008924, can be used as a power amplifier stage, or as a driver stage in high power applications.
Fabricated using M/A-COM Tech’s high linearity MESFET Process, the amplifier features 20 dB Gain and 44 dBm OIP3.
The table below outlines typical part number performance:
