The CMPA2060035F1 from Wolfspeed is an MMIC Power Amplifier that operates from 2 to 6 GHz. It delivers 40 W of output power with more than 22 dB of power gain and power-added efficiency (PAE) of up to 52%. The amplifier is based on a two-stage GaN HEMT design which enables a wide bandwidth. GaN HEMT technology provides a higher breakdown voltage, higher saturated electron drift velocity, and higher thermal conductivity compared to silicon and GaAs. They also offer greater power density and wider bandwidths compared to Si and GaAs transistors.
The CMPA2060035F1 is available in a screw-down package that measures 0.5 x 0.5 inches and is suitable for use in civil and military pulsed radar amplifiers, test instrumentation, and electronic warfare jamming systems.
