StratEdge extends performance range of leaded power amplifier packages
The performance range of leaded power amplifier (LPA) family of packages from StratEdge has been extended from DC to 23GHz to 28GHz. The LPA packages are used for test and measurement, VSAT, point-to-point, and point-to-multi-point applications.
The LPA series ceramic packages are designed to provide good electrical transition performance for die in the DC to 23GHz range with Ku-band frequencies suitable for VSAT. The packages are made to provide wideband electrical performance and incorporate copper composite bases for enhanced thermal dissipation. They are sealed with cup-shaped liquid crystal polymer lids with B-stage epoxy preforms that are provided with the lids. The new design developed by StratEdge will also be available on the LL (leaded laminate) series of packages designed specifically for very high-power GaN devices.
StratEdge was founded in 1992. The company designs, manufactures and provides assembly services for a complete line of high-frequency and high-power semiconductor packages operating from DC to 63+ GHz. StratEdge offers post-fired ceramic, low-cost moulded ceramic and ceramic QFN packages. It specialises in packages for extremely demanding GaAs and GaN devices. The company serves a range of customers operating in a variety of markets including telecomms for 5G, VSAT, broadband wireless, satellite, military, test and measurement, automotive, clean energy, and down-hole.
