Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Richardson RFPD has announced a new line of high-power GaN transistors in rugged, space-saving plastic packages from MACOM.

The new plastic-packaged GaN on Silicon Carbide power transistors offer comparable reliability and a lighter-weight compared to conventional ceramic-packaged GaN devices. They new include 90, 50 and 15 Watt transistors, available in standard 3 x 6 millimeter DFN packaging.

The devices offer wide frequency bandwidth, exceptionally high power added efficiency (PAE), and low overall power transistor size.
