MACOM Announces Highest Power GaN L-Band Radar HEMT
The MAGX-001214-650L00 guarantees 650W of peak power with a typical 19.5 dB of gain and 60 percent efficiency. The device also has a high breakdown voltage which allow customers reliable and stable operation at 50V under more extreme load mismatch conditions. The device is assembled in a ceramic flange package and has undergone MACOM's rigorous qualification and reliability testing.
"The MAGX-001214-650L00 is a clear leader in high pulsed power GaN technology with guaranteed 650 W of peak output power combined with excellent gain, efficiency and reliable performance," said Paul Beasly, product manager. "The device is an ideal candidate for customers looking to combine two power transistors and realise over 1,000 W of peak power in a single pallet for next generation L-Band radar systems that require increased performance in smaller footprints."
Operating between the 1200 to 1400 MHz Frequency range, the MAGX-001214-650L00 has a mean time to failure (MTTF) of 5.3 x106 hours.
