Ideally suited for commercial and military radar and satellite communications applications

Richardson RFPD Inc. announced the availability and full design support capabilities for a new GaAs power amplifier from TriQuint / Qorvo.

The TGA2621-SM is a packaged Ku-band PA fabricated on TriQuint’s TQPHT15 0.15 μm GaAs pHEMT process. It operates from 16 to 18.5 GHz and typically provides greater than 1 W of saturated output power with greater than 23% PAE and greater than 24.5 dB of small signal gain.

The TGA2621-SM is available in a low-cost, surface mount 32 lead 5x5 mm air-cavity ceramic QFN. It is ideally suited to support both radar and satellite communications as a driver or low power amplifier. Both RF ports have integrated DC blocking caps and are fully matched to 50 ohms, allowing for simple system integration.

According to TriQuint / Qorvo, additional key features of the TGA2621-SM include:

  • PSAT: >+30 dBm at Pin = +10 dBm
  •  Input Return Loss: > 10 dB
  • Bias: VD = 6V, IDQ = 500 mA, VG = -0.6V typical
  • Package dimensions: 5.0 mm x 5.0 mm x 1.45 mm
