About Revolutionizing SatCom, 5G, Aerospace and Defense with Microchip’s Complete RF Signal Chain Solution


This webinar explores Microchip’s Complete RF Signal Chain Solution, which is revolutionizing SatCom, 5G, aerospace and defense with performance advances in GaN MMIC power amplifiers for advanced radar technology, linear power Satcom uplinks, 5G and wideband power amplifier applications. The webinar will discuss gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon carbide (SiC) and how it plays a pivotal role in providing the best figure of merit for the power amplifier (PA) in terms of linear output power with the benefit of SWaP-C or size, weight, power and cost.

The merits of MMSM (Monolithic Microwave Surface Mount) RF diodes, integrated (miniature) switched SAW filter banks, and tradeoffs among analog, digital, hybrid and metamaterial beamforming technologies will be covered.

The webinar also discusses GaN on SiC MMIC power attributes that are critical to improving and offering more compelling next-generation products for 5G, aerospace and defense, and SatCom applications.

Key Takeaways

  • Discover how to meet linearity specs for high order modulations used in 5G and satellite communications.
  • Learn about the industry leading Voltage Controlled SAW Oscillators (VCSO’s) with best-in-Class Phase Noise performance.
  • Learn about Integrated (miniature) Switched SAW Filter Bank replacing array of discrete filters with significant miniaturization over discrete solution.
  • Examine power amplifier solutions revolutionizing satellite communications, 5G, aerospace and defense applications.
  • Explore ways to deliver higher power for avionics and L Band radar systems using GaN on SiC.
  • Achieve higher efficiencies for your radar systems, drive wider bandwidths for your MILCOM radio systems.
