Power Amplifier Solutions
High Power Amplifiers, Drivers and Power Amplifier Subsystems
API Technologies is a leading manufacturer of high performance RF and microwave GaN, GaAs, MESFET, E-pHEMT, LDMOS,
Class A, Class AB, Class C, broadband, hybrid, fully-modifiable power amplifier modules, drivers, and subsystems. API’s diverse
lineup of power amplifier solutions include broadband models covering DC to 26 GHz in a small, low profile package. Using
advanced semiconductor technologies for broader bandwidths, along with proprietary design techniques, our power
amplifiers deliver exceptional performance up to 1,000 watts and output power to 500 watts.
Working closely with leading edge semiconductor suppliers, API Technologies exploits the benefits of innovative
semiconductor technologies, paving the way toward increased power density and complexity while reducing the overall size
of the amplifier. This translates to power amplifier solutions that are both reliable and smaller, lighter, and more efficient.
