MACOM's High Power GaN in Space Saving Plastic: A Technical Overview

Source: MACOM

New advancements in packaging and thermal management innovation position M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM) at the forefront of GaN commercialization.

Radar and communications system designers are continuously challenged to strike the optimal balance of size, weight, and power profiles for their unique radar system designs, from military applications spanning ground/air surveillance and target tracking, to civilian radar systems including air traffic control and weather observation. The ever exacting performance, reliability and ruggedization requirements associated with this new generation of mobile radar systems are straining the limits of conventional silicon and GaAs-based power transistor components.
