Achieving the Promise of GaN
Achieving the Promise of GaN

Reducing SWaP (size, weight, and power consumption) of radar and communication systems is a continual challenge for RF and Microwave designers. In this Microwave Journal article titled "GaN in Plastic: A Disruptive Technology," M/A-COM Technology Solutions engineers discuss the recent emergence of GaN (gallium nitride) based power amplifiers in plastic packaging. They show how GaN-driven capabilities are yielding a new generation of more agile, ruggedized radar systems optimized for increasingly demanding requirements.
