  • Gallium Nitride RF Devices for Harsh Military Environments

    Today’s advanced military systems – including phased array radar, communications systems and EW sensors – require high-frequency, high-bandwidth, high-power, high-efficiency devices. These applications are where GaN differentiates itself from other materials. GaN devices can operate at higher bias voltages, which provides several advantages at both the system/subsystem and circuit level, leading to a proportional decrease in current requirement for the circuit. The bottom line: GaN improves the system-level trade-off of size, weight, and power.

  • 4G LTE Accelerates Growth of Radio Frequency Filters

    Factors driving the explosive growth of the RF filter market include crowded spectrum, explosive proliferation of frequency bands, and carrier aggregation. Thus, engineers must consider many criteria when selecting filters. 

  • Go GaN – Go Green

    We hear in many articles that GaN technology is “more green” than current Si- or CMOS-based technologies. But, what does this really mean? This guest column breaks GaN’s environmental friendliness down into two distinct areas - lower installation cost and lower system-level operating costs.
