“This new product line significantly enhances the capability of our existing RF Power product portfolio,” said Stephen G. Daly, President and Chief Executive Officer. “GaN on Silicon Carbide is a compelling technology and we are excited to begin offering our customers both standard and custom MACOM PURE CARBIDE™ power amplifier solutions.”

  • The MAPC-A1000 is a high power GaN-on-SiC amplifier designed to operate between 30 MHz and 2.7 GHz and is housed in a surface mount plastic package. The easy-to-use general purpose amplifier integrates an input match which simplifies the customer’s design-in effort. The amplifier can deliver more than 25 W (44dBm) at greater than 50% efficiency from 500 MHz to 2.7 GHz when tested in a circuit designed for operation over 2.2 GHz simultaneous bandwidth.
  • The MAPC-A1100 is a high power GaN-on-SiC amplifier designed to operate up to 3.5 GHz. The device is capable of supporting both CW and pulsed operations with output power levels of at least 65 W (48.1dBm) in an air cavity ceramic package.

The two new general purpose amplifier products are ideal for use in avionics, high power mobile radios, wireless systems and test instrumentation.
