Tyco Electronics Introduces New M/A-COM 13.75 GHz - 14.5 GHz 1.25 W VSAT Power Amplifier

Low-Cost, RoHS Compliant Amplifier Ideally Suited for Applications that Require High Efficiency

LOWELL, Mass. - Feb. 14, 2008 - Tyco Electronics today launched the M/A-COM MAAPSS0111 amplifier, a new 13.75 - 14.5 GHz, four-stage, 1.25 Watt power amplifier specifically designed for Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) applications that require high efficiency. The MAAPSS0111 can be used as either a driver or an output stage amplifier.

"One of the key figures of merit for amplifiers in communication systems is the inter-modulation performance of third order products, IM3," said David Folding, product manager, Tyco Electronics. "The MAAPSS0111 has well behaved IM3 performance over frequency, temperature, and operating power which will enable high data rate communication in next generation VSAT applications."

The amplifier is designed to generate 31 dBm of saturated output power while drawing 530 mA of current. The M/A-COM MAAPSS0111 has a typical power gain of 32 dB with an operating voltage of 8.0 V and typical IM3 of 26 dBc. The amplifier is housed in a RoHS compliant 6mm 28-lead PQFN package.
