Macom Expands GaN Portfolio With 90W Avionics Power Module
Fully-matched, two-stage GaN module provides true surface mount solution
Macom has announced the newest entry in its portfolio of GaN in plastic power module products. Optimised for pulsed avionics applications in the 960 to 1215MHz band, Macom's new two-stage, fully matched GaN surface mount power module scales to peak pulse power levels of 100W in a 14 x 24 mm package size.
Under pulsed conditions, these modules deliver output power greater than 90W, with 30dB typical associated power gain and 60 percent typical power added efficiency. They support 50V operation and up to 3ms pulse width/duration for improved signal flexibility.
Delivering benefits in size, weight and power while enabling high volume manufacturing efficiency, Macom's new GaN power modules feature a Land Grid Array (LGA) pattern for enhanced thermal flow and true SMT assembly and do not require copper coining or complicated thermal management techniques on the system PCB.
