The all-in-one versatility and ease-of-use of MACOM's RF Energy Toolkit streamlines development cycles and costs for GaN-on-Si-based RF systems, equipping engineers to overcome the limitations of legacy magnetron power sources while achieving significantly higher efficiency than LDMOS-based systems, at comparable cost structures. With the Toolkit, designers are enabled to fine-tune RF energy output for any application requirements, with push-button ease and an intuitive display interface. (Photo: Business Wire)
The all-in-one versatility and ease-of-use of MACOM's RF Energy Toolkit streamlines development cycles and costs for GaN-on-Si-based RF systems, equipping engineers to overcome the limitations of legacy magnetron power sources while achieving significantly higher efficiency than LDMOS-based systems, at comparable cost structures. With the Toolkit, designers are enabled to fine-tune RF energy output for any application requirements, with push-button ease and an intuitive display interface. OEMs designing for more complex RF energy applications can tap MACOM and its partner network for custom applicator and algorithm development, plus expert engineering support.
MACOM's RF Energy Toolkits can scale power output up to 300W leveraging the onboard MACOM GaN-on-Si power transistor, and can be easily paralleled for higher power applications. The Toolkits support pulsed and continuous wave operation at the 2.45GHz frequency band. Future Toolkits will support the 915MHz frequency band.
"Commercial OEMs have awakened to the massive market opportunity for
GaN-on-Si-based solid-state RF systems which essentially remove most of
the limitations of magnetron based systems, but they're new to this
technology, and design and development challenges have slowed their time
to market - until now," said
MACOM will showcase its RF Energy Toolkit at European Microwave Week
