GaN PA MMIC Logs On As World’s Smallest

Heralded as the world’s smallest 5W power amplifier (PA) solution, the NPA1003 GaN PA MMIC measures 4 mm x 4 mm in a thermally-enhanced QFN package with RF inputs and outputs matched to 50?. Requiring just an external resistor and inductor to provide bias, the device delivers a 5W output from 20 MHz to 1.5 GHz with a typical efficiency over 50%. NITRONEX CORP., Durham, NC.
