M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc.
) recently introduced a new ceramic gallium nitride power
transistor - MAGX-001090-600L00 (GaN HEMT) - for avionics
The gold-metalized radio frequency (RF) power transistor is
suitably designed for use in pulsed avionics applications,
including secondary surveillance radar in air traffic control
The transistor has a 600W capacity to support output power and
very low thermal resistance with the lowest pulse droop. The
device can also be used under more demanding operating
conditions. Moreover, MACOM's transistor has cleared the
accelerated, high-temperature lifetime tests this makes it quite
The device satisfies one of the most critical parameters - it
ensures the highest load mismatch tolerance within its class. The
transistor is thus ideal for avionics applications which require
reliable and best quality products.
Of late, MACOM has been launching many new products. Last
week, the company introduced a high power amplifier - MAAP-011027
- for C-Band radar and communication applications. The 8W
amplifier operates in the frequency range of 5.2-5.9 GHz with 37%
Headquartered in Lowell, Mass., MACOM provides semiconductor
solutions that are used in RF, microwave and millimeter wave
applications. Some of its key products are Passive Components,
Active Components, Diodes, Switches and Multi-Chip Modules, which
are applied in sectors such as optical communications, medical,
mobile devices, wireless infrastructure, aerospace and defense.
This ISO9001 international quality standard certified company has
design and manufacturing offices across North America, Australia,
Europe and Asia.
