The CMPA0060025F1 from Wolfspeed is a GaN MMIC Power Amplifier that operates from 20 MHz to 6 GHz. The amplifier delivers up to 25W of saturated output power with a small signal gain of 17 dB and a Power Added Efficiency of better than 20%. It requires a DC Supply of 50V for operation. The amplifier is fabricated with a gallium nitride (GaN) High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) based monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC).
The amplifier requires bias from appropriate Bias-T’s, through the RF input and output ports which are internally matched to 50 ohms. The Bias-T’s were included in the calibration of the test system and all other losses associated with the test fixture are included in the measurements. The amplifier is ideal for Test Instruments and EMC Amplifier Driver Applications.
