TriQuint_S_Band_PR_PhotoIdeally suited for commercial and military S-band radar applications Richardson RFPD Inc. announces full design support capabilities and immediate availability of four new gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN on SiC) power amplifiers (PAs) from TriQuint.

The new S-band amplifiers are fabricated on TriQuint’s production 0.25 μm GaN on SiC process (TQGaN25). Covering 2.7 to 3.7 GHz, these amplifiers are ideally-suited for commercial and military S-band applications and can support short pulse and continuous wave (CW) operating conditions. The RF ports have integrated DC blocking capacitors and are fully matched to 50 ohms for simple system integration.

Key features of the new GaN PAs for S-band include:

Part Number        Frequency (GHz)        Psat (W)      Gain (dB)      PAE (%)      Bias (V / mA)        Package     ECCN
