RF Power

GaN devices pack a high output power capability within a compact physical volume. GaN devices make ideal power amplifiers at microwave frequencies because they can operate at much higher temperatures and work at much higher voltages than GaAs devices. GaN devices also offer higher power efficiency and greater linear power capability.
