The new Low-Noise Amplifiers from TriQuint cover the 2-12 GHz frequency range. These two models of amplifiers provide high overall electrical performance, and a high level of input power robustness to allow for more flexibility in designing the receive chain circuit protection.
Designing A 5W X-Band Amplifier Using An SMT Packaged Transistor
This white paper describes the design of a single stage 5W X-band GaN power amplifier by using a low-cost SMT packaged transistor.
EMC Standards Overview
This application note offers guidelines for common EMC standards used across the industry.
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.
