Analog Devices introduces wideband GaN MMIC amplifier
Offering high gain, power and efficiency in a compact design, the HMC8205 is a wideband gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier that offers best-in-class performance, claims Analog Devices.
It covers the 300MHz to 6.0GHz spectrum, and is claimed to provide benefits for system designers of applications such as wireless infrastructure, radar, public mobile radio, and general-purpose amplification test equipment that require pulse or continuous wave (CW) support.
The HMC8205 GaN monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifier is offered in a small footprint, lead flange mount package, that requires minimal external circuitry, to reduce overall component count and board space.
The HMC8205 GaN MMIC amplifier combines DC feed/RF bias choke, DC blocking capacitors and driver stage on a single design. It delivers 35W with up to 44 per cent power added efficiency (PAE) across an instantaneous bandwidth. The HMC8205 also operates both pulse and continuous wave, unlike comparative designs.
The HMC8205 is sampling now and in full production.
Analog Devices designs and manufactures analogue, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits used in all types of electronic equipment and serving industries that include in instrumentation, automation, communications, healthcare and automotive.
