USA: Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations USA Inc. (SEDU), a leading provider of advanced wireless and optical communications solutions, is introducing new 500W single-ended GaN power amplifiers (PAs) for S-band radar at IMS 2013 in Seattle.
The devices are the first in their class housed in a space-saving IV package--at 17.4mm x 24mm x 5 mm about half the size of current PAs--while offering high efficiency and gain to Radar manufacturers.
"The new PAs are a natural extension of our expertise in GaN technology and reduced footprint, resulting in devices that combine high-power performance into the smallest packages," says John Wyatt, president of
Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations. "This expertise enables radar designers to evolve designs into smaller form factors while enhancing performance."
