Broadband GaN-on-Si PA Module for Infrastructure and Tactical Communications

MACOM has introduced a new GaN-on-Si power amplifier (PA) optimized for use in land mobile radio (LMR) systems, wireless public safety communications and military tactical communications and electronic countermeasures (ECM).

The new MAMG-100227-010 broadband module combines the design efficiencies of a fully-matched (50 Ω), two-stage PA architecture with top-side and bottom-side mounting configurability, the device enables unprecedented design flexibility for radios balancing stringent size, weight and power (SWaP) specifications. It leverages high-performance MACOM GaN-on-Si to achieve an extremely wide frequency bandwidth from 225 to 2600 MHz, with 10 W CW output power, 40% typical power added efficiency (PAE) over the band, 22 dB typical power gain, and up to 36V operation (28V typical).

Provided in a compact 14x18 mm air-cavity laminate package with integrated gold-plated copper heat sink, the MAMG-100227-010 can eliminate the need for additional components and PCB space required for unmatched PA architectures, with top and bottom accessibility for improved mounting and heat sinking agility.

The new power amplifier modules are available to customers today. Click here to learn more about this PA module.
