January 17, 2011

Fully Matched Amplifier Achieves 38 dB Gain and 3 W Linear Power.

December 31, 2008, Houston, Texas - Mimix Broadband, Inc. introduces today a highly linear, 3-stage power amplifier module with 30 W of peak-power and 38 dB small signal gain. This power amplifier, identified as XP9003, operates at 1.6 GHz and is fully matched internally with no external components required. The power amplifier module is housed in a 40x36 mm, RoHS compliant, surface mount, thermally efficient package with a shielded metal lid. The module offers active bias circuit and control voltage, allowing for current setting and minimizing variation over temperature and voltage. The XP9003 is specifically designed for satellite communications transmitters with high peak to average ratio signals.

"The XP9003 offers a great deal of integration, enabling users to reduce component count, save valuable board space and minimize system size while achieving high linear performance," stated Amer Droubi, Product Manager, Mimix Broadband, Inc. "In addition, this surface mount amplifier module has excellent thermal performance due to its high power efficiency combined with a copper heat spreader attached to the bottom of the package."

Samples and production quantities are available from stock. Technical support is also available from Mimix's applications engineers at 281.988.4600. The datasheet and additional product information can be obtained from the Mimix Broadband website at www.mimixbroadband.com.
