Wolfspeed’s CMP5585025D is a gallium-nitride (GaN) HEMT-based monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC). GaN has superior properties compared to silicon or gallium arsenide, including higher breakdown voltage, higher saturated electron drift velocity and higher thermal conductivity. GaN HEMTs also offer greater power density and wider bandwidths compared to Si and GaAs transistors. This MMIC contains a two-stage, reactively matched amplifier design approach enabling very wide bandwidths to be achieved.
