Cree Introduces GaN HEMT MMIC Power Amplifier
Cree Inc. announced the release of a new GaN HEMT MMIC power amplifier, the CMPA0060025F, which offers 25 W output power over an instantaneous bandwidth of 20 MHz to 6 GHz. This product is ideal for military and ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) applications that require high power and broadband amplification up to 6 GHz. The CMPA0060025F is packaged within a 0.25 square inch footprint, making it one of the smallest high-power amplifiers covering this bandwidth available in the marketplace. The MMIC can operate with supply voltages up to 50 V and typically has 12 dB of power gain.
"The CMPA0060025F is a direct result of customer requests for a small, high power, high efficiency amplifier with performance through 6 GHz. It is designed to satisfy these requirements using Cree's proven GaN MMIC foundry process and the convenient package format found in our other GaN MMIC products," said Tom Dekker, Cree Director of Sales and Marketing for RF Products. "We have received excellent customer feedback for our existing GaN MMIC products and are excited to be expanding this product line while continuing to offer custom MMIC foundry services."
