  •  NEWS   Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and MERL Press Release Describes New 5G GaN Power Amplifier Technology
  • Date:

    July 14, 2020

  • Description:

    Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced today its developement of a new technology to realize a gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier module for 5G base-stations that offers a combination of compact (6mm by 10mm) footprint and high power-efficiency, the latter exceeding an unprecedented rating of 43%.

    MERL and Mitsubishi Electric researchers collaborated to develop high density mounting technology and matching circuit that uses a minimum number of chip components to achieve efficient, wide-band power amplification in the 3.4-3.8GHz bands used for 5G communication.

    Please see the link below for the full Mitsubishi Electric press release text. Technical details of the new module will be presented at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium this coming August.
