Qorvo's new GaN 50V transistors boost power gain and efficiency for wideband defense and commercial radar, communications and avionics

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC and Hillsboro, OR, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications) has launched six 50V gallium nitride (GaN) transistors designed to optimize power performance for commercial and defense radar, communications systems and avionics.

"This new family of 50V GaN transistors improves system performance by offering more power gain and power-added efficiency," says Roger Hall, general manager of Defense & Aerospace Products. "Qorvo can better enable defense equipment such as phased-array radars, to deliver higher performance while managing size, cost and power."

The new family of 50V GaN transistors is said to offer significant operational and system cost savings from greater system-level efficiency. The small device size and higher impedance input/output leads help to optimize board designs for radar, communications, avionics, wideband amplifiers and test instrumentation.

The new family of GaN transistors operates from 10W up to 125W Psat power levels. The 4GHz 15W QPD1009 and 10W QPD1010 are now available in low-cost 3mm x 3mm plastic QFN packages, while the 3.2GHz, 125W QPD1008(L) and 65W QPD1015(L) are now available in industry-standard, thermally enhanced NI-360 air-cavity ceramic packages, in both eared (L) and earless versions.

Qorvo is the leading GaN RF supplier for the defense and cable industries, according to market research firm Strategy Analytics. Since 1999, Qorvo has been offering proven GaN circuit reliability and compact, highly efficient products. Qorvo is a Defense Manufacturing Electronics Agency accredited 1A Trusted Source, having completed the Defense Production Act Title III GaN on SiC program in 2014. The firm remains the only GaN supplier to have achieved Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) 9.

Qorvo's GaN products are being showcased in booth 839 at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2016) in San Francisco (22-27 May).
