Mimix launches three stage balanced GaAs MMIC PA and complementary driver amplifier

Mimix Broadband Inc has introduced a gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) three stage balanced power amplifier (PA) and a complementary three stage driver amplifier, the XP1015 and XP1016 respectively.

Ideal for wireless communications applications, such as millimeter-wave point-to-point radio, local multipoint distribution services (LMDS), and SATCOM applications, both amplifiers use 0.15 micron gate length GaAs pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) technology. The PA covers the 43.5 to 46 GHz frequency bands, and has a signal gain of 12 dB with +31 dBm P1dB compression point. The driver amplifier covers this same frequency band and achieves a signal gain of 14 dB with +24 dBm P1dB compression point. Used as a driver and final stage cascade, this chip set achieves 26 dB gain and 2-watts saturated output power.

"This chip set provides over 2-watts of saturated power at 44 GHz, and can be used with our integrated up-converters to provide a complete transmitter chain," stated Dr. Jim Harvey, CTO Emeritus of Mimix.
