The MAAP-011027 from MACOM is a 2 stage, 8 W, C-band, GaAs MMIC amplifier which operates from 5.2 to 5.9 GHz. It provides a gain of 20 dB, a saturated output power of 39 dBm, an efficiency of 37% and requires a 9 Vsupply. The amplifier is matched to 50 ohms on both the input and output. It can be used as a power amplifier or as a driver amplifier forhigh power pulsed applications, point-to-point radios and C-band radar applications. Itis housed in a 5 x 5 mm 20 lead PQFN package.
