Avago Technologies announces its AMMC/P-6333 linear power amplifier. This high-performance driver amplifier has high gain and power coupled with optimal input and output return losses. These amplifiers are built to allow design engineers to meet driver amplifier needs for broadband frequencies while eliminating the need for negative voltage requirements for better RF performance. Available in “bare die” or surface mount packaging, the amplifier targets wireless communication infrastructure applications, including point-to-point radios, VSAT and fiber to the home. With 50 W matching and third order intercept point of 30 dBm, the amplifier is easy to use with a single positive voltage supply and DC power of 5 V bias at 220 mA. This millimeter-wave MMIC is fabricated using proprietary 0.25 µm enhancement mode PHEMT technology, providing high dynamic range support with high out power, high gain and high linearity, broad frequency band support and low current consumption. The AMMC/P-6333 amplifiers are available through Avago's worldwide distribution partners.
