Broadband, multi-stage GaN-on-Si PA from Macom has flexible mounting
The latest broadband, mulit-stage GaN-on Si power amplifier module from Macom has top and bottom accessibility to increase mounting options. It is available from Richardson RFPD.
The MAMG-100227-010 is a broadband, two-stage GaN-on-Si hybrid power amplifier module in an air-cavity laminate package. The 10W device is fully-matched and covers the 225 to 2600MHz frequency range.
A gold-plated copper heat sink is attached to the bottom of the laminate substrate. The package can be accessed from the top or the bottom allowing for it to be mounting in a so-called dead bug (pins upwards) or live bug (pins downward) fashion. This mounting flexibility enables streamlined designs for smaller, lighter radios, points out Richardson RFPD.
The MAMG-100227-010 module is suitable for use in tactical military communications, LMR, and wireless (public safety) markets.
It is fully-matched at input and output and operates at 28V, 36V maximum, CW output power above 10 W and it has 22dB power gain.
The compact device measures 14 x 18mm2.
