Power amplifiers for satcoms
31 January 2017, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

A new family of power amplifiers optimised for L-band and Ka-band systems has been released by MACOM Technology Solutions. The family boasts gain blocks, drivers and power amplifier functions ranging from 2 W to 6 W in output power. Featured products in the family are the 2 Watt MAAP-011060 L-band power amplifier module and the 3 Watt MAAP-011289 Ka-band power amplifier which are designed for satellite communication and connectivity applications.

The MAAP-011060 is a 2 W power amplifier module operating at 1,6 GHz and packaged in a lead-free, 6 mm, 12-lead LGA package. This device is a highly integrated module for L-band satellite communications, making it ideal for customers looking for a very linear and efficient solution for satellite phones or mobile Internet connectivity. The MAAP-011060 provides 33 dBm of linear output power, high gain of 30 dB and a convenient power-down function. The power amplifier module is operated with a single positive bias and delivers greater than 30% power added efficiency which supports longer battery life for critical satellite communication equipment.

The MAAP-011289 is a Ka-band 3 W power amplifier housed in a lead-free, 5 mm QFN package. The device delivers a highly linear solution which is ideally suited to next-generation commercial VSAT outdoor units, which provide increased data rates of connectivity to end users. The amplifier boasts 20 dB typical gain, 26% power added efficiency and saturated power of 35 dBm.
