Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology continues to be a game changer for military radar, electronic warfare (EW), and communications applications. In the following Q & A with Roger Hall, General Manager, Defense & Aerospace for Qorvo he discusses GaN’s impact on these applications, reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements, how automotive radar innovation is influencing [...]
Qorvo’s TGL2223 is a wideband, 5-bit digital attenuator using the company’s TQPHT15 production 0.15um GaAs pHEMT process. Operating from 0.1 - 31 GHz, the TGL2223 offers a low attenuation step size (LSB) of 0.5 dB and supports > 15.5 dB of attenuation range with a low RMS step...
OpenVPX for EW applications is not only a trend in the U.S., as companies in Europe and Africa are also leveraging the standard for EW signal processing.
A family of GaN power amplifiers from Qorvo is intended for use in military satellites and commercial very small aperture terminal (VSAT) ground stations. The Ku- and Ka-band power amps are fabricated using Qorvo's already-released QGaN15 process technology, for reliable operation.
