It was way back in August of 2000 when we fabricated the industry's first successful GaN-on-SiC MMIC amplifier that generated 20W at 9GHz. We showed the RF industry that there was a better alternative to the expensive GaAs devices and bulky TWTs (traveling wave tubes) to deliver better efficiency and higher power densities for radar and satellite communications.
