EuMW2013: 5W CW GaN transistor in SOT-89 package

M/A-COM Technology Solutions took the wraps off a new GaN unmatched wideband transistor in SOT-89 package that is ideally suited to 50 V operation in driver and power applications, at European Microwave Week 2013 in Nurnberg, Germany.

The MAGX-000040-00500P is an effective solution for customers who need a reliable power device with wideband performance and high voltage operation. Operating over the DC - 4.0 GHz frequency bandwidth, the device is packaged in a light weight 2.5mm x 4.5mm SOT-89 plastic surface-mount package that allows customers easy implementation and assembly. The transistor delivers reliable operation at junction temperature of 158 °C in CW mode with the device being rated to a maximum junction temperature of 200 °C. Boasting small size, surface-mount assembly and reliable high voltage operation, the device provides customers a high performing alternative to traditional flanged or metal-backed module components.

“RF and Microwave designers are continuously challenged to improve Size, Weight and Performance (SWaP) of radar and communication systems”, said Paul Beasly , Product Manager. “The newest 5 W addition to the GaN in Plastic family extends MACOM’s leadership in supporting customers to meet design challenges with the key advantages of 50 V bias, CW operation and small-size, surface mount plastic packaging.”
