MACOM Introduces Broadband, Multistage GaN-on-Si Power Amplifier Module With Flexible Mounting Capability For Leading Design Agility

Lowell, MA.- (BUSINESS WIRE) - MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions, has expanded its GaN-on-Si power amplifier portfolio with the introduction of its new MAMG-100227-010 broadband PA module optimized for use in land mobile radio (LMR) systems, wireless public safety communications and military tactical communications and electronic countermeasures (ECM). Combing the design efficiencies of a fully-matched (50 Ω), two-stage PA architecture with top-side and bottom-side mounting configurability, the MAMG-100227-010 is poised to enable unprecedented design flexibility for radios balancing stringent size, weight and power (SWaP) specifications.

The new MAMG-100227-010 leverages high-performance MACOM GaN-on-Si to achieve an extremely wide frequency bandwidth of 225 – 2600 MHz, with 10W CW output power, 40% typical power added efficiency (PAE) over the band, 22 dB typical power gain, and up to 36V operation (28V typical). Provided in a compact 14x18 mm air-cavity laminate package with integrated gold-plated copper heatsink, the MAMG-100227-010 can eliminate the need for additional componentry and PCB space required for unmatched PA architectures, with top and bottom accessibility for improved mounting and heatsinking agility.
