June 26, 2019 by Mouser Electronics

This GaN HEMT operates from a 50V rail and offers a broadband solution to RF and microwave applications.

This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

Wolfspeed/Cree GaN HEMT 

Cree’s CGHV40200PP is an unmatched GaN HEMT with high gain and high bandwidth for use in a variety of RF applications, such as 2-way radios, broadband amplifiers, cellular infrastructure, and test instrumentation. 

The transistor operates from a 50V rail and can be used with signals up to 3.0GHz. At 1.8GHz, the CGHV40200PP has a 21.0dB small signal gain, 16.1dB power gain, and can output up to 250W with 67% drain efficiency. The transistor has a low thermal resistance and packaged in a 4-lead flange package, with a 225°C maximum junction temperature and 150°C maximum case temperature. 

The high efficiency, high gain, and wide bandwidth features make the CGHV40200PP ideal for linear and compressed amplifier circuits.
