Qorvo, Inc., a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, today announced a family of hybrid gallium nitride (GaN)/gallium arsenide (GaAs) power amplifiers optimized to extend the reach and address the explosion of higher data throughput required for the point-to-point radio link market.
"Wireless infrastructure customers increasingly require higher power amplifiers to expand data throughput and enable longer point-to-point connections," said Gorden Gook, general manager of Qorvo's Transport business unit. "Qorvo's newest hybrid GaN/GaAs power amplifier product portfolio draws upon 30 years of leadership in advanced GaAs and GaN process technologies to help advance the commercial wireless infrastructure market."
The TGA2752-SM, TGA2753-SM and TGA2760-SM family utilizes the benefits of both GaN and GaAs technologies to deliver up to 16 watts of output power as required by the evolving needs of the point-to-point market.
The frequency ranges are as follows: TGA2752-SM operates from 7.1-8.5 GHz; the TGA2753-SM operates from 5.9-7.7 GHz; and the TGA2760-SM operates from 9.5-12 GHz. With a unique packaging design, both the TGA2752-SM and TGA2753-SM products are available in a low-cost, surface mount 7x9 mm² QFN package, suited for point-to-point radio and C-band linear satellite communications. The higher-frequency TGA2760-SM is available in an 8x10 mm² package. Qorvo's hybrid power amplifier products are sampling today.
Qorvo is showcasing its power amplifiers at Booth 331 at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS), May 18-21 in Phoenix, Arizona. Qorvo also offers an extensive portfolio of VCOs, low noise amplifiers, driver amplifiers, upconverters and downconverters for the commercial wireless infrastructure market.
