TriQuint introduces 27-31 GHz 5 W GaN PA
TriQuint's TGA2594 is a Ka-Band power amplifier fabricated on TriQuint's 0.15um GaN on SiC process. Operating between 27 and 31 GHz, it achieves 5 W saturated output power with an efficiency of 28% PAE, and 23 dB small signal gain. Along with excellent linear characteristics, the TGA2594 is ideally suited to support both commercial and defense related satellite communications.
To simplify system integration, the TGA2594 is fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking caps on both I/O ports.
The TGA2594 is 100% DC and RF tested on-wafer to ensure compliance to electrical specifications. It is lead-free and RoHS compliant. Evaluation boards are available upon request.
