RFMD Announces 15 W GaN Wideband Power Amplifier
RFMD’s RFHA1000 GaN Power IC (PIC) is a wideband power amplifier designed for continuous wave and pulsed applications, such as military communications, electronic warfare, wireless infrastructure, radar, two-way radios and general purpose amplification.
Using an advanced high power density Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductor process, this high performance amplifier achieves high efficiency, flat gain and power over a large instantaneous bandwidth in a single amplifier design. This GaN discrete amplifier is 50Ω input-matched, and packaged in a small form factor 5 x 6 mm SOIC-8 outline air cavity ceramic package that provides excellent thermal stability through the use of advanced heat sink and power dissipation technologies.
Ease of integration is accomplished through the incorporation of an optimized input matching network within the package that provides wideband gain and power performance in a single amplifier. An external output match offers the flexibility of further optimizing power and efficiency for any sub-band within the overall bandwidth.
