Description

TriQuint's TGA2218 is a Ku-band, high power MMIC amplifier fabricated on TriQuint's production 0.15um GaN on SiC process.  The TGA2218 operates from 13.4 – 16.5 GHz and provides greater than 12 W of saturated output power with 23 dB of large signal gain and greater than 28% power-added efficiency.

This high performance combination provides system designers the flexibility to improve system performance while reducing size and cost.

The TGA2218 is fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking capacitors on RF ports simplifying system integration. It is ideally suited for military and commercial Ku-band radar and satellite communication systems.

Lead-free and RoHS compliant.

Evaluation boards are available upon request.
