Macom Technology Solutions announced the newest entry in its GaN-on-Si power transistor portfolio for pulsed L-Band radar systems targeted for airport surveillance radar (ASR) applications at 1.2 to 1.4 GHz. Delivering industry-leading efficiency at peak pulse power levels up to 500W, the new MAGX-101214-500 is expected to outperform premium-priced GaN-on-SiC-based transistors, and far exceed the performance, efficiency and power density of legacy LDMOS-based devices.

High power levels

MACOM’s new MAGX-101214-500 enables customers to scale to higher power levels across a host of ASR applications, delivering 500W output power and greater than 70% power efficiency under pulsed conditions at 50V operation. Supplied in a small-footprint ceramic flanged package and supporting matching structures that minimize circuit size, MAGX-101214-500 transistors help to enable rugged, compact radar systems underpinned with efficient, simplified cooling and power supply architectures.
