Microchip adds first MMIC to GaN RF portfolio

Satellite communication systems use complex modulation schemes to achieve the fast data rates required to deliver video and broadband data. To attain this, they must deliver high RF output power while simultaneously ensuring the signals retain their desired characteristics. Microchip Technology Inc of Chandler, AZ, USA says that its new GMICP2731-10 gallium nitride (GaN) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) power amplifier (available now in volume production) can help to meet both of these requirements…
