Power Amplifier MMICs

C, X, K, Ku, and Ka Band GaAs and GaN MMIC Options for RF Power Amplifier Designs

Often, cutting-edge RF / Microwave system designs and sub-assemblies are restricted on size and require higher regimes of linearity than prior technologies are capable of. Custom MMIC focuses on providing GaAs and GaN Power Amplifiers (PAs) that meet these extremely high power and high linearity needs of RF / Microwave systems while offering small die and surface mount (SMT) packages with wide bandwidths. Knowing that the best electrical performance is only half the battle, Custom MMIC provides many of its PAs with 50 Ohm matched designs and a single positive bias supply voltage that reduces complex bias sequences for lower costs and space savings. Additional features include: high output power, high linearity, and excellent efficiency. High power density GaN MMIC designs are also available. 

Custom MMIC RF Power Amplifiers are also designed with system integration in mind, with internal 50 Ohm matched designs available, which eliminate the need for DC blocks and RF port matching, and with many PAs requiring only a single-positive supply rail further reducing BOM complexity, size, and cost. Moreover, Custom MMIC’s GaN Power Amplifiers exhibit positive gain slope and removes the need for gain slope equalization circuitry.
