Wolfspeed, a Cree Company, is highlighting the key role played by its industry-leading GaN-on-SiC RF devices in delivering solutions for modern military communications challenges. Wolfspeed’s RF devices support mobile military communications and counter-IED requirements, specifically in the design and development of more efficient broadband power amplifiers for military wireless communications and electronics warfare (EW) applications.

“Wolfspeed’s GaN RF devices provide a key enabling technology for military systems designed to counter the threat from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the battlefield, delivering a combination of power and efficiency performance that cannot be achieved with any other competing technology,” said Jim Milligan, vice president, RF and microwave products. “Wolfspeed is proud to carry on our long tradition of supporting our military and federal agencies with the most advanced GaN RF technologies designed to increase the safety and the effectiveness of our military forces.”
