MACOM Expands Portfolio with New 4-Watt Packaged Linear Power Amplifiers

New Power Amplifiers Designed for 7 and 8 GHz Point to Point Radio Cellular Backhaul Applications

LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 14, 2016 — MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance analog RF, microwave and optical semiconductor products, today announced the new MAAP-011161 and the MAAP-011193, two packaged linear power amplifiers designed specifically for use in point to point radios in cellular backhaul applications. The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 operate over 7.1-7.9 GHz and 7.7-8.5 GHz respectively, and are intended for 7 and 8 GHz radio applications.

The MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 feature a Third Order Intercept Point (OIP3) of 46.5 dBm and greater than 35.5 dBm saturated output power. The MAAP-011161 boasts 22 dB small signal gain, while the MAAP-011193 provides 20 dB small signal gain. These power amplifier MMICs come in an air cavity 7 mm surface mount package with a copper coin paddle for excellent thermal performance. The devices include on-chip ESD protection structures and DC by-pass capacitors to ease the implementation and volume assembly of the packaged part, and are RoHS Compliant.

“This pair of MMIC power amplifiers is a great addition to MACOM’s existing portfolio,” said Stuart Cornelius, Product Manager, Carrier Networks, MACOM. “We believe the gain, output power and Third Order Intercept performance make these products ideal solutions for 7 GHz and 8 GHz cellular backhaul point to point radio applications.”

Production quantities and samples of the MAAP-011161 and MAAP-011193 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the MACOM website at:
