The MAAP–011232 is a 2-stage power amplifier with gain shut off, operating from 100 MHz to 3 GHz. For operation in the 100 MHz to 1 GHz frequency range, no I/O matching is required. Internal DC blocking is provided at the input, while the RF output port is DC coupled through an external bias-tee. Bias current, RF gain and output power are controlled with a gate supply voltage (VG). Typical current consumption is less than 300mA at maximum output power. The unit is well suited to both power and driver requirements for multiple applications such as LMR, milcom, sensors & telemetry, test & measurement, and SATCOM. It is fabricated using a GaAs D-mode high breakdown process which features full passivation for increased performance and reliability.
