Richardson RFPD Introduces New Broadband, Multistage GaN-On-Si Power Amplifier Module With Flexible Mounting Capability From MACOM

Top- and bottom-accessibility increases mounting and heatsinking design agility

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced recently the availability and full design support capabilities for a new 10 W hybrid GaN module from MACOM Technology Solutions Inc.

The MAMG-100227-010 is a broadband, two-stage GaN-on-Si hybrid power amplifier module in an air-cavity laminate package. The 10 W device is fully-matched and covers wide 225–2600 MHz frequency range.

A gold-plated copper heat sink is attached to the bottom side of the laminate substrate. The package can be accessed from the top or the bottom allowing for “live bug” or “dead bug” mounting. This mounting flexibility enables streamlined designs for smaller, lighter radios.

The new module is ideal for use in tactical military communications, LMR, and wireless (public safety) markets.

Additional key features of the MAMG-100227-010 include:

  • Fully-matched at input and output
  • 28 V operation (typ.); 36 V (max)
