Stratedge in the US has extended the performance range for the leaded power amplifier (LPA) family of packages from DC to 28GHz.

The LPA packages are used for test and measurement, VSAT, point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint applications and will be available with gallium nitride (GaN) devices.

The LPA Series ceramic packages were designed to provide good electrical transition performance for die in the DC to 23 GHz range, with Ku-band frequencies for VSAT being the most popular customer application.

The packages are made to provide wideband electrical performance and incorporate copper composite bases for enhanced thermal dissipation. They are sealed with cup-shaped liquid crystal polymer lids with B-stage epoxy preforms that are provided with the lids.

The new design will also be available on the LL (leaded laminate) series of packages designed specifically for very high-power Gallium Nitride (GaN) devices.

“We have manufactured millions of these packages since the 1990s for a wide range of applications,” says Casey Krawiec, VP of global sales. “This is another example of StratEdge continually improving our products to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers.”
