The EXP7603 is a GaAs MMIC power amplifier designed for 50-Ohm systems, and specified for operation in the 71 to 76 GHz range of E-Band.

The EXP7603 enables delivery of 26 dBm RF output power when driven to 3 dB of gain compression, and maintains good linearity well below the onset of gain compression. Typical small-signal gain is 17 dB with flatness of ±0.75 dB over a 1.25 GHz window. DC power consumption is as low as 2 W.

The EXP7603 also provides a built-in E-Band power detector, and internally de-couples DC from RF input and output ports to simplify system-level design.
