M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc., a supplier of high-performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new power amplifier for point-to-point radio applications.

The MAAP-008924 is a three-stage, high linearity 1.2 W GaAs power amplifier. Packaged in a 5 mm, 20-Lead PQFN, the amplifier is fully matched to 50 ohms on both the input and output.

“The MAAP-008924 provides a high output IP3 while maintaining low DC power consumption,” said Jack Redus, Product Manager. “This power amplifier is an excellent choice for 10, 11 and 13 GHz point-to-point radio transceivers for cellular backhaul applications.”

Operating between the 10 to 13.3 GHz frequency range, the MAAP-008924 can be used as a power amplifier stage, or as a driver stage in high power applications. Fabricated using M/A-COM Tech’s high linearity MESFET Process, the amplifier features 20 dB gain and 44 dBm OIP3.
