10 Watt SiC MESFET Designed for WiMAX PA Applications

Cree, Inc. is now shipping sample quantities of its new 10-watt packaged silicon carbide MESFET, the CRF35010, optimized for broadband wireless access and WiMax applications. SiC MESFETs can provide an improvement of nearly twice the operating voltage and at least 4 times the achievable bandwidth compared to traditional technolo- gies such as silicon LDMOS or GaAs.
