RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a 36.5 dBm GaN power amplifier serving 27 to 31 GHz applications in SatCom, Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint radios. The TriQuint TGA2594-HM is a hermetic, 7 x 7 mm QFN packaged device with 25 dB small signal gain and 35 dBc IM3.
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for a medium power, high gain amplifier using TriQuint GaN technology. The TGA2597-SM offers 32 dB of saturated output power using a 25 V bias and drawing only 40 mA. This biasing voltage makes the TGA2597-SM compatible with TriQuint’s high power amplifiers
RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for TriQuint’s TGA2598-SM, a 33 dBm Psat GaN driver amplifier. The TGA2598-SM offers 25 dB small signal gain from two internal gain stages housed in a 4 x 4 mm, air-cavity ceramic QFN package. Covering 6 to 12 GHz, the TGA2598-SM offers >25% power added efficiency.
Pasternack Enterprises Inc. has significantly expanded their portfolio of connectorized RF amplifiers including high power, high-rel, broadband, limiting, power, low noise and log amplifiers and gain blocks. Pasternack now offers 107 unique amplifier modules all with varying performance characteristics.
Custom MMIC, a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), is pleased to announce the release of the CMD218, a 5 to 9 GHz low noise amplifier (LNA) in die form. The CMD218 offers a gain of 22 dB, output of 1 dB, compression point of +19.5 dBm, and noise figure of less than 1.25 dB across the 5 to 9 GHz frequency range.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for two 2.7 to 3.7 GHz packaged GaN power amplifiers from TriQuint.
