Mimix adds 7.1 to 8.5 GHz QFN packaged GaAs MMIC linear PA to product portfolio

Mimix Broadband Inc of Houston, TX, USA has introduced a QFN packaged GaAs MMIC linear power amplifier (PA) with 49 dBm OIP3 and 14.5 dB small signal gain. The XP1050-QJ PA covers 7.1 to 8.5 GHz and includes an integrated temperature compensated on-chip power detector. Available in an RoHS compliant, industry standard, fully molded 6x6mm QFN package, the PA includes on-chip ESD protection structures and DC bypass capacitors.

"XP1050-QJ is the industry’s first standard QFN power amplifier that delivers high gain, high power and 49 dBm OIP3 linearity performance for the 7.1 to 8.5 GHz band,” said Paul Beasly, product manager for Mimix Broadband. “The device offers an attractive alternative to the traditional discrete power FET devices by providing advantages through standard packaging, higher gain, broadband performance and fully matched design. In conjunction with our XP1035-QH driver amplifier, Mimix can provide the ideal transmit lineup for high linearity and power applications.”

The XP1050-QJ is suitable for wireless communications applications, such as point-to-point radio, LMDS, SATCOM and VSAT. Samples and production quantities will be available in four weeks, says the firm.
