MaxLinear linearization and Cree GaN-on-SiC PAs combine to efficiently power new ultra-wideband 5G

Radio-frequency (RF), analog, digital and mixed-signal integrated circuit provider MaxLinear Inc of Carlsbad, CA, USA and Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA say that combining MaxLinear’s ultra-wideband linearization solution (MaxLin) and Cree’s Wolfspeed gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon carbide (SiC) mid-band power amplifiers can increase wireless capacity of a 5G base station, supporting more simultaneous users and increasing the speed of data transmissions…
