Mimix Broadband has unveiled its latest GaAs monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) amplifier for millimeter-wave applications. Model XP1073-BD provides 22 dB gain and +37 dBm saturated pulsed output power from 34 to 37 GHz. Ideal for millimeter-wave, military, radar, and satellite applications, the amplifier achieves 24-percent power-added efficiency over its operating frequency range.

According to Product Manager Jeff Kovitz, "The XP1073-BD is a balanced high-power amplifier, and with saturated output power of nearly 6 W, it rises well above anything available in the marketplace today." He added that, "by balancing two of our popular XP1072-BD devices using a fairly unique Lange coupler network, the XP1073-BD provides the end user with a well-matched HPA solution for many Ka-Band applications."
