Mimix Broadband Inc. introduces a GaAs MMIC high power amplifier with +35 dBm pulsed saturated output power and 22 dB large-signal gain. This power amplifier, identified as XP1072-BD, covers 34 to 37 GHz and achieves 25 percent power added efficiency (PAE). The device is well suited for millimeter-wave military, radar, satellite and weather applications.

"This XP1072-BD multi-stage amplifier delivers industry leading power and efficiency for Ka-band applications, with a saturated output power of nearly 4 W, providing a boost to applications that require both high power and efficiency in a small area," said Jeff Kovitz, product manager, Mimix Broadband Inc. "It also serves as the foundation for our balanced +37 dBm XP1073-BD device, and, in conjunction with our XP1017-BD driver amplifier, it provides an excellent solution for many Ka-band high power amplifier requirements."

Mimix performs 100 performs RF testing on the XP1072-BD. Samples and production quantities are available in eight weeks.
