MACOM launches high-linearity 6W power amplifier for Ka-band, high-data-density Satcoms and5G radio access networks

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog RF, microwave, millimeter-wave and photonic applications) has launched a high-linearity 6W power amplifier, suited to Ka-band high-data-density satellite communications and 5G radio access networks.

Operating at 27.5-30GHz, the MAAP-011140-DIE is offered as a bare die, delivering linear gain of 24dB, saturated output power (PSAT) of 6W (38.5dBm), and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 23%. The device provides greater than 25dBm POUT/tone while maintaining IM3 levels of 30dBc. The efficiency performance allows users to operate remote VSAT terminals with lower power consumption and higher performance than competing alternative offerings, claims the firm. The 6W PSAT enables greater transmission power and signal strength performance in critical military or civilian datalink applications.

"The MAAP-011140-DIE offers a unique combination of high power, linearity and efficiency in a small form factor that is ideally suited to systems requiring highly efficient Satcom transmitter solutions," claims product manager Paul Beasly. "In conjunction with the recently announced 4W Ka-band PA, MAAP-011139-DIE, this new 6W device broadens MACOM's Ka-band power amplifier family."

Production quantities and samples of MAAP-011140-DIE are available from stock.
