Mimix launches 34-37GHz GaAs MMIC PA with 4W saturated output power, 22dB gain and 25% PAE

Mimix Broadband Inc of Houston, TX, USA has introduced a GaAs MMIC high-power amplifier with +35dBm pulsed saturated output power and 22dB large-signal gain. Covering frequencies of 34-37GHz and achieving 25% power-added efficiency (PAE), the XP1072-BD is suited to millimeter-wave military, radar, satellite and weather applications.

“This XP1072-BD multi-stage amplifier delivers industry-leading power and efficiency for Ka-band applications, with a saturated output power of nearly 4 Watts, providing a boost to applications that require both high power and efficiency in a small area,” claims product manager Jeff Kovitz.

“It also serves as the foundation for our balanced +37dBm XP1073-BD device and, in conjunction with our XP1017-BD driver amplifier, it provides an excellent solution for many Ka-band high-power amplifier requirements,” he adds.
