The new MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248 offer fully matched solutions for driver and power applications
LOWELL, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 21, 2016 — MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic semiconductor products, today introduced the MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248, distributed power amplifiers operating from DC to 22 GHz. These amplifiers can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in higher power applications, and are ideally suited for Test and Measurement (T&M), Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) and Radar applications.
For over 60 years, MACOM’s design and applications experts have spearheaded innovation in the RF, microwave and millimeterwave domain. Proven engineering and application support teams are continuing in this legacy with a next generation of wideband MMIC solutions designed for the most demanding customer applications.
The MAAP-011247, a 2 watt amplifier, features 12dB of linear gain, 33 dBm of saturated output power and the industry’s highest output power for a MMIC amplifier covering DC-22 GHz. The device is fully matched across the band and provides 42 dBm of OIP3 linearity. The MAAP-011248, a 1 watt amplifier, offers 12.5 dB of linear gain, 30 dBm of saturated output power and can be operated over a drain voltage of 9 to 12 V for optimization of RF power versus DC power dissipation.
Both devices offer customers an integrated temperature-compensated output power detector, and are available in bare die or in 5mm QFN packages.
“The MAAP-011247 and MAAP-011248 are the first of four new distributed amplifiers designed to deliver high gain and power in compact bare die or QFN packaged solutions,” said Graham Board, Senior Director, Multi-Market Products, at MACOM. “Two additional distributed amplifiers with ¼ W and ½ W output power, are scheduled for release over the next two quarters. This complete family of distributed amplifiers will offer customers a full range of power levels to solve their most challenging wideband Test & Measurement and mission critical Aerospace & Defense system requirements.”
