GigOptix Samples Low Power DC To 26.5GHz Distributed Power Amplifier

GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GIG), a leading fabless supplier of semiconductor and optical components that enable high-speed information streaming, today announced that it has started engineering sampling of its EXH2008, a Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) wideband power amplifier in a surface mountable QFN package, for use in military Electronic Warfare (EW), radar, test & measurement equipment and broadband telecom equipment applications.

Key features of the EXH2008 include:
  • Wideband performance from 10MHz to 26.5 GHz
  • Typical drain voltages of +8 VDC with supply current of 350 mA
  • Delivers up to 29 dBm typical Psat
  • Low power dissipation of less than 3 Watts
  • Gain up to 10 dB across band with a gain flatness of better than ±1 dB
  • Internally matched 50 Ohms RF input and output
  • High performance surface mountable 7x7mm QFN

“The EXH2008 represents another powerful addition to the growing family of GigOptix’s wideband amplifier solutions,” stated Padraig O’Mathuna, Vice President and General Manager of GigOptix’s RF/MMIC Product Line. “The EXH2008 leverages GigOptix’s high speed packaging expertise to enable a wideband packaged amplifier that demonstrates excellent performance into the K-band and provides similar performance to die based solutions. Moreover, the EXH2008 utilizes GigOptix’s industry leading low power MMIC design that dissipates significantly less power than similar competing solutions. The EXH2008 package is fully RoHS compatible and compatible with industry standard SMT manufacturing techniques making it an ideal solution for lowering the cost of military as well as test and measurement designs.”

The EXH2008 is offered as a 7x7mm SMT QFN package and is available for engineering sampling immediately.
