Altum RF, a fabless high frequency component company from Eindhoven-The Netherlands and member of ALPHA-RLH, is focussing on development and sales of high performance RF components using the latest GaAs and GaN technologies.
Altum RF successfully exhibited at the European Microwave week (EuMW) in Paris from 1 to 3 October.The EuMW was an excellent opportunity to showcase their latest developments. One of their flagship products, the ARF1307C7, received a lot of attention as it a unique component on the market that will enable new RF applications and system architectures.
The ARF1307C7 is a GaN (gallium nitride) distributed power amplifier housed in an air-cavity surface-mount ceramic package and designed for high bandwidth applications. With 17 dB small-signal gain, 10 W of output power and 11 dB of power gain, it is well suited for a wide variety of applications. The part is internally matched to 50 Ω. RF ports are AC coupled.
