GaN MMIC Foundry Services
|Process Name||ADS 2009 PDK||ADS 2011 PDK|
Broadband performance - Enables high power, multi-octave bandwidth amplifiers
Cree’s GaN HEMT MMIC processes are available for MMIC development using full-wafer service (FWS) or a shared multi-project MASK SET (SM) fabrication service. The process features high-power density (4 Watts/mm) transistors, slot vias, high reliability up to 225ºC operating junction temperatures, and scalable unit cells (1 to 8mm/Cell). The value of such MMICs is more power bandwidth and higher efficiency within a smaller footprint compared to other MMIC technologies.
Using Simulation to Optimize the Performance of your Cree Parts
To help designers get the most out of Cree devices, Keysight Technologies has developed a free, downloadable ADS workspace with an instructional Application Note (publication number 5991-4154EN). Several load-pull and DC I-V simulations are included to help you determine ways to optimize and characterize your Cree part.
