IXYS Announces WiMax Power Amplifier Modules

FREMONT, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 16, 2008— MicroWave Technology Inc. (MwT), a wholly owned subsidiary of IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS) announced that it had started shipping WiMax Power Amplifier Modules in production volume for 4.9 5.9 GHz OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex) digital radio applications.

An innovative supplier for high performance GaAs based semiconductor devices, MMICs (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits), and microwave amplifiers modules for microwave and wireless communications, MwT released a family of eight high linearity power amplifiers (PA) for WiFi (802.11) and WiMax (802.16d/e) standards for all three frequency bands, 2.4 2.7 GHz, 3.3- 3.7 GHz, and 4.9 5.9GHz.

MwT has started shipping its WPS-545922-02, a high linearity power amplifier module (PAM), to a first-tier telecom system company in production volume for high data rate wireless communication applications including OFDM digital radio systems.

"We are very pleased that our high linearity PAM, WPS-545922-02, has been selected to be the key component for the wireless radio systems," said Dr. Greg Zhou, general manager of MwT. The WPS-545922-02 leverages our strong expertise in semiconductor devices together with our high linearity PA architecture. Customers have selected our linear power amplifiers due to their superior linearity performance and other critical RF characteristics. Our high quality PAM products provide wireless infrastructure players the enabling technology to achieve the highest data rate under complex digital modulation schemes.

The WPS-545922-02 is a highly integrated PA module with fully matched input and the output terminals. No external matching elements are required. The PAM belongs to the WPS (Wireless Power Series) PAM products family targeted for 802.16 WiMax, 802.11 Wireless LAN and other high data rate wireless radio link applications. This WPS product family includes high linearity PAM products operating at 2.5, 3.5 and 5.9 GHz frequency bands with up to 5W peak power and up to 1W linear average output power at 2% EVM (Error Vector Magnitude) under 64QAM digital modulation scheme, enabling radio systems to achieve highest data rate with minimum power consumption.
