Model TGA2218-SM is a packaged Ku-band, high power MMIC amplifier fabricated on the company’s production 0.15um GaN on SiC process. The unit operates from 13.4 to 16.5 GHz and provides greater than 12W of saturated output power with 23 dB of large signal gain and greater than 29% power-added efficiency (PAE). This high performance combination provides system designers the flexibility to improve system performance while reducing size and cost. The TGA2218-SM is fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking capacitors on the 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.
