Mimix Broadband, Inc. Introduces 14.5 to 16 GHz GaAs MMIC High Power Amplifier Delivering 5W Output Power. Dual-Sided Bias Amplifier Achieves 27 dB Gain and +37 dBm Psat.

April 29, 2009, Houston, Texas - Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces today a GaAs MMIC high power amplifier (HPA) with +37 dBm saturated output power and 27 dB small signal gain. This HPA, identified as XP1058-BD, uses a dual-sided bias architecture, covers 14.5 to 16 GHz, and achieves +44 dBm OIP3. The device is well suited for millimeter-wave military, radar, satellite and weather applications.

"The XP1058-BD is a 4-stage power amplifier with high gain in a single chip, providing 5W of saturated output power and giving customers an excellent solution for medium power Ku-Band applications," stated Jeff Kovitz, Product Manager, Mimix Broadband, Inc.

Mimix performs 100% RF testing on the XP1058-BD. Samples and production quantities are available in four weeks. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.988.4600. The datasheet and additional product information can be obtained from the Mimix Broadband website at www.mimixbroadband.com.
