MACOM Expands Industry Leading MMIC Portfolio with 1 Watt Power Amplifier

The new MAAP-011232 delivers high gain across the 100 MHz to 3.0 GHz frequency range

Lowell, Mass, May 16, 2016 – MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high-performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave and photonic products, today introduced the MAAP-011232, a 2-stage, 1 Watt driver amplifier featuring gain shut off and operating from 100 MHz to 3 GHz. This device is suited to both driver and power requirements across a broad range of applications, including land-mobile-radio, military communications, sensors, telemetry, test and measurement and satellite communications.

The MAAP-011232 features a typical gain of 23 dB and up 40% power added efficiency.  The device can be operated between 5 V to 9 V and consumes less than 300 mA at maximum output power of 1 Watt. The MAAP-011232 device is fully matched while operating in the 100 MHz to 1 GHz frequency range and can be tuned with input matched to perform up to 3 GHz. The device is offered in a 3 mm 16 lead PQFN plastic package.

“The MAAP-011232 was designed to offer customers excellent power and drive performance over a broad frequency range,” said Paul Beasly, Product Manager, RF and Microwave, MACOM. “The high gain and enable function can replace the need for additional gain blocks and/or attenuators in customers’ systems, which makes the device an ideal candidate for applications that require a small footprint and surface-mount solution.”
