Model TGA2576 is a gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier developed by TriQuint Semiconductor for C-IED and electronic-warfare (EW) applications. It provides 30 W saturated output power in the 2.5-to-6.0-GHz range with typical small-signal gain of 25 dB and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 30 percent. According to Grant Wilcox, TriQuint Marketing Manager, "TriQuint's gallium nitride portfolio offers the performance and dependability that defense and aerospace customers demand. Our new TGA2576 is ideal for counter-IED systems and other EW applications. TriQuint leads in both GaN and GaAs technologies, so you can depend on us for design assistance, service and products that support mission success."
