RF Micro Devices (RFMD) Inc.'s RFHA1000 GaN power IC is a wideband power amplifier aimed for continuous wave and pulsed applications. These include military communications, electronic warfare, wireless infrastructure, radar, two-way radios and general purpose amplification. The device achieves high efficiency, flat gain and power over a large instantaneous bandwidth, said RFMD.


The RFHA1000 is designed for continuous wave and pulsed applications.

The discrete amplifier is 50 input-matched, and packaged in a small form factor 5 x 6mm SOIC-8 outline air cavity ceramic package that provides excellent thermal stability through the use of advanced heat sink and power dissipation technologies. Ease of integration is accomplished through the incorporation of an optimized input matching network within the package that provides wideband gain and power performance in a single amplifier. An external output match offers the flexibility of further optimizing power and efficiency for any sub-band within the overall bandwidth, the company noted.

The RFHA1000 features operation of 28V and output power of 15W. It delivers 50-1000MHz instantaneous bandwidth and 17dB gain. It claims a power added efficiency of 60 percent and offers EAR99 export control. Large-signal models are available for the device.
