MACOM expands power amplifier portfolio

M/A-COM Technology Solutions has announced the MAAP-011246, a new 2-Watt power amplifier, and the MAAP-011139, a new 4-Watt power amplifier in a SMT package.

These 4-stage, fully matched power amplifiers are suited for Ka-Band SATCOM applications, and provide linearity for either final power amplification stages or driver stages in higher power applications.

The MAAP-011246 operates from 27.5 to 31.5 GHz, providing customers with 23 dB of linear gain, 2 W saturated output power and 24% added efficiency. The device is offered in a 5x5 mm 32-lead QFN package and offers an IM3 level of -25 dBc at 27 dBm Pout/tone, making the power amplifier an ideal solution for high-performance commercial SATCOM uplink terminal applications.

The MAAP-011139 is offered in a 5x5 mm 32-lead QFN package and operates from 28.5 to 31.0 GHz while providing 22 dB linear gain and 23% added efficiency. The device delivers 4 W saturated output power and greater than 27 dBm Pout/tone while maintaining IM3 levels of 30 dBc, which is twice the linear performance of competing alternatives.

“The superior linearity performance of the MAAP-011246 and MAAP-011139 are further complemented by their high gain, power added efficiency and availability in SMT QFN packages,” said Paul Beasly, Product Manager, MACOM. “The addition of these 2 watt and 4 watt packaged power amplifiers to MACOM’s complete chip-set solution offers customers increased performance and flexibility in next generation Ka-Band VSAT systems.”
