M/A-COM Tech announces 1 W Linear RF driver amp for MILCOM and infrastructure
The MAAM-010617 is a 30 dBm GaAs MMIC amplifier which exhibits high linearity over a wide input power range. Biased with a single +5 V supply, the MAAM-010617 has a quiescent current of 420 mA. The amplifier is tunable over the wide frequency range of 30 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.”
