Cree introduces highest power and frequency plastic packaged GaN transistors

Cree, Inc. introduces the industry’s highest power continuous wave (CW) GaN HEMT RF transistors packaged in a dual-flat no-leads (DFN) format. Aimed at the cost-sensitive sub-100W commercial radar and data link amplifier market segments, the new 6- and 25-watt DFN transistors effectively obsolete the use of inefficient GaAs transistors in C- and X-Band frequencies and also enable the practical replacement of short life tube-based technology for commercial radar applications such as weather, marine and surveillance.
