The MAAP-011248-DIE is a 1W distributed power amplifier offered as a bare die part. Operating from DC to 22 GHz, this power amplifier provides 14 dB of linear gain and 30.5 dBm of output power at 3 dB compression. The device is fully matched across the band and includes a temperature compensated output power detector. The MAAP-011248-DIE can be used as a power amplifier stage or as a driver stage in higher power applications. This device is ideally suited for test and measurement, EW, ECM, and radar applications. It is fabricated using a GaAs pHEMT process that features full passivation for enhanced reliability.
