Two new radar parts, the CMPA5259025F, a 25W, 28V GaN MMIC PA (above), and the CMPA5259050F, a 50W, 28V GaN MMIC PA, both cover C-band. They are designed in a compact 0.5” square package with greater than 30 dB small signal and nominally 50% drain efficiency. This combination enables phased array radar designers to maximize the power per element for C-band radar systems. Both components are also used in linear and compressed amplifier circuits in marine radar, weather monitoring (Doppler weather radar), air traffic control, maritime vessel traffic control services, and port security applications. The 50W MMIC PA for C-band radar enables modular system design with increased reliability and lower maintenance costs.
