GaN on Si demo takes centre stage at European Microwave Week
M/A-COM Technology Solutions (MACOM) will showcase a broad GaN product portfolio along with a live GaN on Si demo at EuMW 2014 in Rome (Oct 7-9). It will also feature a suite of new products aimed at applications spanning industrial, scientific, medical, E-Band point-to-point wireless and X-Band radar.
The GaN power products, range from 100W GaN in plastic to 1000W ceramic GaN devices. There will be a live demonstration of the GaN on Silicon integrated amplifier family. It will feature matched, broadband, integrated amplifiers operating over a 30-2500MHz band, showcasing the ease of use of these products for a variety of applications.
A new family of high-performance, ultra compact broadband mixers that are ideal for multi-market customers and boast excellent performance over a wide range will be on parde alongside an X-Band Multi-Function Module.This fully integrated MMIC packaged in a 7x7 QFN enables dual path transmit/receive operation over the X-Band for weather and commercial radar applications.
MACOM’s Business Unit Directors, Product Managers and Technology Fellows will present papers at the European Microwave Week conference. Topics include ‘Improving GaN on Si Power Amplifiers Through Reduction of Parasitic Conduction Layer’ and ‘A Single-Chip, Low-Noise Video Amplifier with Variable Gain in a 0.5 µm GaAs pHEMT Technology'.
