M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM), a supplier of high performance RF, microwave and millimetre wave products, has rolled out its latest line of GaN in plastic power module products. Aimed for pulsed avionics applications in the 960-1215MHz band, the 2-stage, fully-matched GaN surface mount power module scales to peak pulse power levels of 100W in a 14 x 24mm package size, detailed the company.

According to the company, the devices support surface mount technology (SMT) assembly, providing significant cost and process advantages compared to ceramic-packaged flange-mount components. Delivering clear benefits in size, weight and power (SWaP) while enabling high volume manufacturing efficiency, MACOM's GaN power modules feature a land grid array (LGA) pattern for enhanced thermal flow and True SMT assembly and do not require copper coining or complicated thermal management techniques on the system PC board, indicated the company.

Under pulsed conditions, these modules deliver output power greater than 90W, with 30dB a typical associated power gain and 60 per cent typical power added efficiency. Supporting 50V operation and up to 3ms pulse width/duration for improved signal flexibility, MACOM's GaN in plastic power modules claim to reduce overall power consumption and cooling requirements compared to existing options.
