Integra begins production shipments of first 100V RF GaN products
Integra Technologies Inc (ITI) of El Segundo, CA, USA, which provides RF and microwave high-power semiconductor and pallet solutions for mission-critical applications (including radar, electronic warfare and advanced communications systems), has begun production shipments to US and European customers of its 100V RF gallium nitride (GaN) technology.
“In collaboration with our customers, our system engineers have helped design new radar architectures that take full advantage of the benefits of our third-generation 100V RF GaN technology,” says Integra’s VP of sales & marketing Tom Kole. “It’s exciting to see Integra’s 100V RF GaN products move into production with customers as it signifies another industry first.”
Integra also announced expansion of its 100V RF GaN product portfolio with the introduction of seven new products for avionics, directed energy, electronic warfare (EW), radar and scientific market segments with power levels up to 5kW in a single transistor. These products incorporate Integra’s 100V RF GaN technology optimized to deliver the highest power and efficiency in a single transistor while maintaining reliable operating junction temperatures. Combined with Integra’s thermally enhanced patents and transistor design expertise, the products offer reliable operation with a mean-time-to-failure (MTTF) of 107 hours. “Integra has spent a decade innovating, maturing and commercializing our ground-breaking 100V RF GaN technology,” notes president & CEO Suja Ramnath. “Building upon our 25 year heritage of semiconductor innovation, this third-generation 100V RF GaN continues to extend our technical and market leadership.”
Additionally, Integra’s partner Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics of Milpitas, CA, USA (part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group that provides solutions, sub-systems and components to the space, transportation, defense and industrial markets) is offering high-reliability options for all of Integra’s 100V RF GaN power devices and pallets targeted at the defense market. “Our space customers can benefit from Integra’s 100V RF GaN products combined with Teledyne’s expertise and long heritage providing space RF components,” says Brad Little, VP & general manager of Teledyne e2v HiRel. “These innovative products offer space payload engineers state-of-the-art power devices for insertion into their applications.”
