MACOM Introduces 2 Watt High Power Amplifier with Integrated Power Detector

MACOM’s 17.65-19.75 GHz Device is Designed for Cellular Backhaul Applications and Extends its 18GHz Portfolio of High-Power Amplifiers

LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 31, 2015 — M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor solutions, today announced the new MAAP-011145, a power amplifier designed specifically for 18 GHz wireless backhaul applications.

The MAAP-011145 is a power amplifier covering the 17.6-19.75 GHz frequency band in a 7 mm, lead-free, cavity package. This device features a temperature compensated integrated power detector, and includes ESD protection and by-pass capacitors to ease the implementation and volume assembly of the packaged part.

The MAAP-011145 boasts over 2 watts output power at 1 dB compression point, 25 dB small signal gain, a Third Intercept Point (OIP3) of 43 dBm and a noise figure of 7 dB and 34.5 dBm of saturated output power. The MAAP-011145 provides customers with a robust, high performance solution for demanding cellular backhaul applications.

“The outstanding technical performance of our new MAAP-011145 power amplifier, coupled with our broad portfolio of switches, LNAs and diodes, provides point-point radio designers with an elegant solution for next generation 18GHz point-point radio designs,” said Stuart Cornelius, Product Manager, MACOM. “This addition to MACOM’s Wireless Backhaul power amplifier portfolio further positions MACOM as the power amplifier vendor of choice for Wireless Backhaul applications.”

Production quantities and samples of the MAAP-011145 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website at:
