M/A-COM Tech lanches 1W linear RF driver amplifier for MilCom and infrastructure applications

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes analog semiconductors, components and subassemblies for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched an RF driver amplifier for MilCom and infrastructure applications.

The MAAM-010617 is a 30dBm gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifier that exhibits high linearity over a wide input power range. Biased with a single +5V supply, it has a quiescent current of 420mA. The amplifier is tunable over the wide frequency range of 30-4000MHz in order to optimize its performance based on the end application.

Packaged in a lead-free SOT-89 package, the MAAM-010617 is fabricated using an HBT process to realize a constant high linearity over a wide input power and frequency range. The operating bandwidth can be optimized with selective off-chip components.

“The high linearity and frequency range of this part make it an ideal gain block in linear systems,” says Kevin Harrington, Aerospace & Defense marketing manager. “The SOT-89 standard package is a good thermally efficient package which is easy to handle during assembly for our customers,” he claims.

Production quantities and samples are available from stock.
