RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., 18 Dec. 2015. Wolfspeed, A Cree Co. in Research Triangle Park, N.C., is introducing the CMPA801B025 X-Band GaN MMIC power amplifier for aerospace and defense applications.

The RF and microwave device is rated for 25 Watts and 8.5-11.0 GHz operation, delivers high performance in a small form factor and offers 37 Watts typical POUT, 16 decibel power gain, 35 percent typical power added efficiency (PAE), and <0.1dB power droop.

The GaN MMIC also is internally matched to 50?, and is supplied in both a 10-lead metal/ceramic flanged package and a smaller form factor pill package for optimal electrical and thermal performance.
