At the virtual International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2020, MACOM introduced two new wideband MMIC power amplifier products – MAAM-011277-DIE and MAAM-011291-DIE. The two devices can be used as driver or power amplifiers for Microwave Communications, Test and Measurement, Aerospace & Defense, and Multi-Market application.MAAM-011277-DIE FeaturesThe MAAM-011277-DIE is a 4-stage, 0.25 W power amplifier 2.5 x 1.15 mm MMIC die. This product is fabricated using a GaAs pHEMT process which features full passivation for enhanced reliability.This power amplifier operates from 20 to 45 GHz and provides 22 dB of linear gain, 0.25 W at P1dB compression, and 17% efficiency (P3) while biased at 5 V.This device can be used as a driver amplifier ideally suited for the various operational band between 20 GHz and 45 GHz.Click here for more information on this product.MAAM-011291-DIE Features The MAAM-011291-DIE is a 4-stage, 1 W power amplifier MMIC die. This product is fabricated using a GaAs pHEMT process which features full passivation for enhanced reliability.This power amplifier operates from 20 to 45 GHz and provides 19 dB of linear gain, 1 W at P3dB compression, and 15% efficiency at P3dB while biased at 5 V.This device can be used as a power amplifier ideally suited for 5G systems and test and measurement applications in the 20 to 45 GHz range.All data is taken with the chip connected via three 1 mil diameter gold bond wires that are each approximately 350 um long.Click here for more information on this product.IMS 2020 was scheduled to take place in Los Angeles, California from 21-26 June 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event took place virtually from 4 – 6 August 2020. However, all presentations and materials will stay online until 30 September 2020.
