The CMPA0060002F1-AMP from Wolfspeed is a GaN MMIC Power Amplifier that operates from DC to 6 GHz. It delivers a saturated output power of 5.9 W with a small signal gain of more than 16.8 dB and power-added efficiency (PAE) of up to 39%. This MMIC amplifier is based on Wolfspeed’s CMPA0060002F1 GaN HEMT and uses GaN-on-SiC technology. It employs a distributed amplifier design approach, enabling extremely wide bandwidths to be achieved in a small-footprint screw-down package with a copper-tungsten heat sink. The amplifier requires a DC supply of 28 V.
The CMPA0060002F1-AMP is available in a surface-mount package with flanges that measure 0.5 x 0.5 inches and is ideal for use in ultra-broadband amplifiers, fiber drivers, EMC amplifier drivers, and test instrumentation applications.
