The TriQuint TGA2559-FL a packaged Ku-band power amplifier which provides 36 dBm of saturated output, 30% power-added efficiency, and 25 dB mid-band gain, with operation from 14-16 GHz.  The TGA2559-FL power amplifier is designed using TriQuint’s proven standard with the GaAs pHEMT 0.25 um gate production process.

The TGA2559-FL is a bolt-down flange package featuring low loss ground-signal-ground (GSG) RF transitions designed to interface with a coplanar wageguide multilayer board.  Fully matched to 50 ohms and with integrated DC blocking capacitors on both I/O ports, the TGA2559-FL is ideally suited to support both commercial and defense related applications for Ku-band communications
