TriQuint Semiconductor (Booth 2218) will highlight its new K-band power amplifier at IMS 2011. Operating from 21.2 to 23.6 GHz, TriQuint’s TGA4533-SM offers a packaged, 1W P1dB, K-Band power amplifier with 22dB small signal gain. The high OIP3 of 41dBm from this pHEMT device supports applications in PtP radio and microwave test equipment. Drawing only 800mA from a 6V supply, this device delivers the same linear power as competing devices with 35% less power dissipation. The TGA4533-SM is housed in a RoHS compliant, 4x4mm, 20L QFN.
