Electronics Semiconductors Wireless MMIC RF wireless

400-Watt S-band power amplifier MMIC is a high-performance RF to millimeter-wave semiconductor solution for next generation markets and applications, created in collaboration with TNO and using WIN Semiconductors’ NP45-11 technology. Operating between 2.8-3.3GHz, the amplifier delivers an output power of 400W and a PAE between 50-55% and is suitable for S-band radar applications. WIN Semiconductors’ NP45-11 process is a 0.45μm RF GaN-on-SiC HEMT technology manufactured with enhanced moisture protection, enabling the use of a plastic package. Altum RF’s strategic relationship with TNO results in leading-edge RF to millimeter-wave products and technology for commercial markets and applications. This collaboration allows firm to commercialize some of the technical capabilities of TNO, an industry-leading global research institute with an impressive history of innovation.
