Packaged GaN MMIC Power Amplifier: CMPA901A020S

Source: Wolfspeed, A Cree Company

Cree’s CMPA901A020S is a packaged, 20W HPA utilizing Cree’s high performance, 0.15um GaN on SiC production process. The CMPA901A020S operates from 9-10 GHz and targets pulsed radar applications such as marine weather radar. 

With 3 stages of gain, this high performance amplifier provides >30dB of large signal gain, potentially lowering the transmit BOM count, and >50% efficiency to support lower system DC power requirements and simplify system thermal management solutions. Packaged in a small 6x6 mm plastic overmold QFN, the CMPA901A020S also supports reduced board space requirements and high throughput manufacturing lines. Applications include: X-Band Pulsed Radar, Marine Weather Radar, and Military Radar. For more information on this product, download the available datasheet.
