Wolfspeed exhibiting X-band radar products at IRSI 2015 in Bangalore

Wolfspeed of Raleigh, NC, USA, a Cree Company that supplies gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) high-electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs) and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is exhibiting its portfolio of GaN RF devices for L-, S-, C-, and X-band radar at the 2015 International Radar Symposium India (IRSI-15) in Bangalore (15–19 December).

Founded in 1983 and revived in 1999 as a biennial series, IRSI features technical conference presentations and tutorials addressing state-of-the-art technologies, techniques and practices related to: radar systems, receivers, antennas, arrays, controllers, processors, software, devices, components, emitters, transmitters, modeling, and simulation, in addition to radar signal and array processing, tracking and data processing, and image and weather radar. In support, the IRSI exhibition is showcasing subsystem products, models, photographs, modules, and multimedia presentations.

Exhibiting in booth C-28 with APC Technologies, Wolfspeed representatives Jim Milligan (director RF), Chris Harris (European business development manager) and Vidya Bakshi (operations manager) will present the firm's portfolio of GaN RF devices for L-, S-, C- and X-band radar. This includes the CMPA801B025 X-band GaN MMIC power amplifier (rated for 25W and 8.5–11.0GHz operation) for pulsed radar and broadband CW applications, which features: 37W typical POUT, 16dB power gain, 35% typical power-added efficiency (PAE), and <0.1dB power droop. The GaN MMIC is also internally matched to 50Ω, and is supplied in both a 10-lead metal/ceramic flanged package and a new, smaller-form-factor pill package for optimal electrical and thermal performance.

"IRSI will provide us with a valuable opportunity to introduce our cutting-edge GaN RF devices, world-class design assistance, proven fabrication processes, and testing and international customer support services to influential members of the local radar industry," comments Milligan.
