Power and Driver Amplifiers
M/A-COM introduces a new line of power and driver amplifiers. The MAAPGM0041-DIE and MAAPGM0042-DIE are three-stage 1.2 W and 1.3 W X/Ku-band devices with variable (4 to 10 V) drain voltage operation. Both deliver 31 dBm of power output with 20 dB small signal gain. P1dB compression pint is 28 dBm and 30 dBm, respectively. Two three-stage 0.5 W power amps, the MAAPGM0044-DIE and MAAPGM0047-DIE feature on-chip bias networks and variable drain voltage control (4 to 10 V) to simplify circuit design when output power reaches its target 27 dBm. The MAAPGM0005-DIE is a 200 mW Ku-band amp for point-to-point radio systems operating between 12 and 19 GHz. The MAAPGM00-43-DIE and MAAPGM0045-DIE operate between 11.5 and 15 GHz. P1dB is 31 dBm and noise is 7 dB and 10 dB, respectively. The MAAPGM0025-DIE is a high power 6 W C-band amplifier running from 5.5 to 7 GHz. It's a two-stage device with a 38 dBm output power, 36 dBm P1dB, 17.5 dB small signal gain and a 5.5 dB noise figure.
