Mimix Asia, a supplier of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) for microwave and millimeter-wave applications, introduced a 2.7 to 3.8 GHz GaAs MMIC power amplifier that has 32 dB large signal gain and 41.5 dBm saturated output power. Identified as XP5002-BD, this device includes on-chip gate bias circuitry and delivers 40 percent power added efficiency. The XP5002-BD is well suited for radar, satellite and commercial applications.

"The XP5002-BD provides a fully matched, high gain power amplifier solution," said Paul Beasly, Business Development Manager, Mimix Asia. "The integrated bias circuitry, internal matching and superior gain performance provide an exceptionally compact solution for S-band high power applications."
