MACOM expands power amplifier portfolio
M/A-COM Technology Solutions has announced the MAAP-011246, a new 2-Watt power amplifier, and the MAAP-011139, a new 4-Watt power amplifier in a SMTDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns. package.These 4-stage, fully matched power amplifiers are suited for Ka-Band SATCOM applications, and provide linearity for either final power amplification stages or driver stages in higher power applications.
The MAAP-011246 operates from 27.5 to 31.5 GHz, providing customers with 23 dB of linear gain, 2 W saturated output power and 24% added efficiency. The device is offered in a 5×5 mm 32-lead QFN package and offers an IM3 level of -25 dBc at 27 dBm Pout/tone, making the power amplifier an ideal solution for high-performance commercial SATCOM uplink terminal applications.The MAAP-011139 is offered in a 5×5 mm 32-lead QFN package and operates from 28.5 to 31.0 GHz while providing 22 dB linear gain and 23% added efficiency. The device delivers 4 W saturated output power and greater than 27 dBm Pout/tone while maintaining IM3 levels of 30 dBc, which is twice the linear performance of competing alternatives.“The superior linearity performance of the MAAP-011246 and MAAP-011139 are further complemented by their high gain, power added efficiency and availability in SMTDiscrete miniature capacitors which are packaged without leads and fastened directly to foil patterns. QFN packages,” said Paul Beasly, Product Manager, MACOM. “The addition of these 2 watt and 4 watt packaged power amplifiers to MACOM’s complete chip-set solution offers customers increased performance and flexibility in next generation Ka-Band VSAT systems.”
