Qorvo Unveils Hybrid GaN/GaAs Point-to-Point Power Amplifier Family

GREENSBORO, N.C. and HILLSBORO, Ore., May 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo, Inc. (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, today announced a family of hybrid gallium nitride (GaN)/gallium arsenide (GaAs) power amplifiers optimized to extend the reach and address the explosion of higher data throughput required for the point-to-point radio link market.

"Wireless infrastructure customers increasingly require higher power amplifiers to expand data throughput and enable longer point-to-point connections," said Gorden Gook, general manager of Qorvo's Transport business unit. "Qorvo's newest hybrid GaN/GaAs power amplifier product portfolio draws upon 30 years of leadership in advanced GaAs and GaN process technologies to help advance the commercial wireless infrastructure market."

The TGA2752-SM, TGA2753-SM and TGA2760-SM family utilizes the benefits of both GaN and GaAs technologies to deliver up to 16 watts of output power as required by the evolving needs of the point-to-point market.

The frequency ranges are as follows: TGA2752-SM operates from 7.1-8.5 GHz; the TGA2753-SM operates from 5.9-7.7 GHz; and the TGA2760-SM operates from 9.5-12 GHz. With a unique packaging design, both the TGA2752-SM and TGA2753-SM products are available in a low-cost, surface mount 7x9 mm² QFN package, suited for point-to-point radio and C-band linear satellite communications. The higher-frequency TGA2760-SM is available in an 8x10 mm² package. Qorvo's hybrid power amplifier products are sampling today.

Qorvo is showcasing its power amplifiers at Booth 331 at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS), May 18-21 in Phoenix, Arizona. Qorvo also offers an extensive portfolio of VCOs, low noise amplifiers, driver amplifiers, upconverters and downconverters for the commercial wireless infrastructure market. Discuss with us at the show or online using #IMS2015 and #QorvoIMS.
