The EXP8604 is a GaAs MMIC power amplifier designed for 50-Ohm systems, and specified for operation in the 81 to 86 GHz range of E-Band.

The EXP8604 enables delivery of 25.5 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 18 dB and OIP3 of 33dBm.

The EXP8604 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.
