The design goal of CGHV1F025S-AMP4 was to create an application circuit for tactical radio capable of operating under a constant amplitude signal such as OQPSK. Overall the required peak power target was set at 47 dBm to allow for an average output power of about 43dBm across the band. The circuit was constructed on Rogers RO4350 mounted on an aluminum plate. It utilizes the CGHV1F025S which is a 25 W device housed in a plastic package DFN package for surface mount applications. Breakout paths are available on the board to operate a single device only to applications requiring lower output power. The available reference design documentation includes dxf file, PCB, schematic drawing, and assembly drawing.
Wolfspeed has recently introduced two new additions to its lineup of GaN RF power devices that are ideal for ultra-broadband amplifier applications that require high reliability and efficiency.
