M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New 8-Watt Power Amplifier

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new power amplifier for S-Band radar applications.

Operating between the 2.5 GHz - 3.5 GHz S-Band frequency range, the MAAP-010171 is a 2-stage, 8.0 W pulsed power amplifier. The MAAP-010171 is fully matched to 50 ohms on both the input and output.

Each device is 100% RF tested to ensure performance compliance. The part is fabricated using M/A-COM Tech’s high linearity pHEMT Process. With gain of 27dB and efficiency of 38%, the MAAP-010171 is packaged in 5x5mm 20-Lead PQFN package, allowing for easy assembly.

“This device is an integral part of our S-Band radar product portfolio," said Scott Vasquez, Product Manager. “With its 8 Watt saturated output power, 27dB gain, and 38% power added efficiency, the MAAP-010171 is well positioned to be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in high power pulsed radar applications."
