Power amplifier for electronic warfare applications in aircraft and shipboard jamming introduced by CTT

SUNNYVALE, Calif., 10 April 2011. CTT Inc. in Sunnyvale, Calif., is introducing a solid-state RF and microwave power amplifier that operates from 6 to 18 GHz for wideband electronic warfare jamming applications on surface ships and aircraft, as well as for next-generation jamming designs. The gallium nitride (GaN) -based power amplifier is a monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) with efficiency, high operating temperature range, and small size, CTT officials say.
