Mimix Broadband Inc. introduced a GaAs MMIC high power amplifier (HPA) with +37 dBm saturated output power and 27 dB small signal gain. This HPA, identified as XP1058-BD, uses a dual-sided bias architecture, covers 14.5 to 16 GHz, and achieves +44 dBm OIP3. The device is well suited for millimeter-wave military, radar, satellite and weather applications.

"The XP1058-BD is a four-stage power amplifier with high gain in a single chip, providing 5 W of saturated output power and giving customers an excellent solution for medium power Ku-band applications," stated Jeff Kovitz, Product Manager, Mimix Broadband Inc.
