Original Press Release

Richardson RFPD Introduces New High-Power MMIC Amplifiers Covering DC-22 GHz for Test & Measurement, EW and Radar from MACOM

Press release date: Apr 27, 2017

Devices deliver high gain and power in compact bare die

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for two new power amplifiers from MACOM Technology Solutions Inc.

The two-watt MAAP-011247-DIE and 1-watt MAAP-011248-DIE are distributed power amplifier offered as bare die parts. Operating from DC to 22 GHz, these power amplifiers provide high linear gain and output power at 3-dB compression. The devices are fully matched to 50 Ω across the band, include temperature-compensated output power detectors, and are fabricated using a GaAs pHEMT process featuring full passivation for enhanced reliability.

The MAAP-011247-DIE and MAAP-011248-DIE can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in higher power applications. They are suitable for test and measurement, EW, ECM, and radar applications.

Additional key specifications of the new devices include:

Part number             Gain (dB)             P1dB (dBm)             P3dB (dBm)            OIP3 (dBm)        Bias (mA @ V)       Die Size (mm)

MAAP-011247-DIE     13.5                        +30                       +33.5                       +42                   500 @ 15             2.99 x 1.5 x 0.1

MAAP-011248-DIE       14                         +28                      +30.5                        +38                   400 @ 12             2.99 x 1.5 x 0.1
