A new line of gallium arsenide (GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) high power amplifiers have been developed by the Northrop Grumman Corporation. The power amplifiers operate in the E-Band communication spectrum.

The APH667 and the APH668 are GaAs-based broadband, three-stage amplifier devices that operate from 81 to 86GHz and 71 to 76GHz, respectively.

These new products are an example of Northrop's ongoing effort to push the boundaries of robust GaAs technology, said Frank Kropschot, general manager, Microelectronics Products and Services, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems.

"Customers typically combine several MMIC products in this frequency band to achieve higher output power. The APH667 and APH668 will allow them to dramatically reduce the number of components required to reach those goals, simplifying the product's architecture and enhancing the performance," he said.

Further information and datasheets for Northrop Grumman's E-Band product line can be found here.
