ELECTRONICS: Cree Inc.’s new GaN HEMT MMIC power amplifier, the CMPA0060025F, offers 25W output power over an instantaneous bandwidth of 20 MHz to 6 GHz. This product is ideal for military and ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) applications that require high power and broadband amplification up to 6 GHz. The CMPA0060025F is packaged within a 0.25 sq inch footprint, making it one of the smallest high-power amplifiers covering this bandwidth available in the marketplace. The MMIC can operate with supply voltages up to 50V and typically has 12 dB of power gain.
