Mimix Broadband introduced their model XP1031-QK four-stage GaAs MMIC power amplifier at this week's European Microwave Conference in Munich, Germany. The power amplifier, designed for applications from 37 to 42 GHz, delivers 23-dB small-signal gain with output third- order intercept point of +35 dBm. Supplied in a 7 x 7 mm, RoHS-compliant, surface-mount- technology (SMT) package, the compact amplifier is ideal for satellite-communications systems and point-to-point terrestrial microwave radios. According to Damian McCann, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Mimix Broadband, "Our latest design of a highly linear 38-GHz packaged power amplifier completes the transmit portion of a typical linear radio and, together with our integrated XR1008-QB receiver and XU1006-QB transmitter, forms the industry's first full SMT 38-GHz integrated chipset."
