MACOM's Commitment to Wireless Network Infrastructure

“Major basestation OEMs understand they need wide bandgap GaN performance with transformational cost structures and manufacturing capacity that we believe can only be supplied by a GaN-on-Silicon supply chain. GaN is needed for efficiency and gain to meet 5G antenna range and energy efficiency in the field. MACOM GaN-on-Si will provide it all — performance, cost and high-volume supply chain.”

MACOM GaN Technology for Wireless Basestations


MACOM's new MAGb series is the industry's first commercial basestation-optimized family of GaN power ampliflier products to achieve leadership efficiency, bandwidth and power gain with the linearity and cost structure like LDMOS, with path to better than LDMOS cost. Leveraging MACOM's Gen4 GaN technology, this new series enables wireless carriers to deploy the latest LTE releases and significantly reduce operating expenses at highly competitive price points, with robust and scalable CMOS-like supply chain combined with MACOM’s best in class applications and design support team with decades of experience.

Debunking GaN Myths

The semiconductor technology landscape for wireless infrastructure is undergoing a major transformation, particularly in the power amplifier (PA) market. The multi-decade dominance that laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) amplifiers have sustained in the PA domain is being challenged by Gallium Nitride (GaN), and the implications for wireless basestation performance and operating costs are profound.
