Power Amplifier MMICs

GaN and GaAs RF Power Amplifier MMICs for C, X, K, Ku, and Ka Band 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 GaN and GaAs RF 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) MMIC packages with wide bandwidths. Knowing that the best electrical performance is only half the battle, Custom MMIC provides many of its RF Power amplifier MMICs with 50-oOhm 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 Amplifier MMICs are also designed with system integration in mind. IN addition to internal 50-ohm matched designs, which eliminate the need for DC blocks and RF port matching, many of our power amplifiers require only a single-positive supply rail which further reduces BOM complexity, size, and cost. Moreover, Custom MMIC’s GaN Power Amplifiers exhibit positive gain slope and remove the need for gain slope equalization circuitry.
