TriQuint's TGA2216 is a wideband cascode amplifier fabricated on TriQuint's production 0.25um GaN on SiC process. The cascode configuration offers exceptional wideband performance as well as supporting 48V operation. The TGA2216 operates from 0.1 - 3.0GHz and provides 12W of saturated output power with 14dB of large signal gain and greater than 40% power-added efficiency.
The broadband performance supports both radar and communication applications across defense and commercial markets as well as electronic warfare. The TGA2216 is fully matched to 50 ohms at both RF ports allowing for simple system integration. DC blocks are required on both RF ports and the drain voltage must be injected through an off chip bias-tee on the RF output port.
