25-W, 8.0 – 11.0-GHz, GaN MMIC Power Amplifier

Wolfspeed’s CMPA801B025F is a gallium-nitride (GaN) HEMT-based monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC). GaN has superior properties compared to silicon or gallium arsenide, including higher breakdown voltage, higher saturated electron drift velocity and higher thermal conductivity. GaN HEMTs also offer greater power density and wider bandwidths compared to Si and GaAs transistors. This MMIC is available in a 10-lead metal/ceramic flanged package for optimal electrical and thermal performance.
