GaN-on-Si Power Amplifier with Flexible Mounting Capability


10W fully-matched, two-stage PA covers the 225 – 2600 MHz frequency range

Lowell, Massachusetts – MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”) has expanded its GaN-on-Si power amplifier portfolio with the introduction of its new MAMG-100227-010 broadband PA module optimized for use in land mobile radio (LMR) systems, wireless public safety communications and military tactical communications and electronic countermeasures (ECM). Combing the design efficiencies of a fully-matched (50 Ω), two-stage PA architecture with top-side and bottom-side mounting configurability, the MAMG-100227-010 is poised to enable unprecedented design flexibility for radios balancing stringent size, weight and power (SWaP) specifications.

The new MAMG-100227-010 leverages high-performance MACOM GaN-on-Si to achieve an extremely wide frequency bandwidth of 225 – 2600 MHz, with 10W CW output power, 40% typical power added efficiency (PAE) over the band, 22 dB typical power gain, and up to 36V operation (28V typical). Provided in a compact 14x18 mm air-cavity laminate package with integrated gold-plated copper heatsink, the MAMG-100227-010 can eliminate the need for additional componentry and PCB space required for unmatched PA architectures, with top and bottom accessibility for improved mounting and heatsinking agility.

For over 60 years, MACOM’s design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeterwave domain, developing the industry’s broadest portfolio of components spanning the entire RF signal chain. Leveraging advanced, proprietary technologies, MACOM’s heterogeneous semiconductor and packaging strategy ensures that each individual RF system function is fully optimized to deliver maximum performance at the appropriate cost. MACOM remains firmly committed to delivering true competitive advantage to our customers, providing superior technology, expertise, cost structures and supply chains – with no compromises.
