Qorvo announces GaN-on-SiC Transistors for Public Safety Radios
Compact, 50V transistors reduce current loss and simplify design
Qorvo has announced a new family of 50V GaN on GaN-on-SiC transistors for mission-critical tactical and public safety radios. The transistors are input-matched for wideband applications and feature a compact footprint, enabling smaller, next-generation communications devices.
James Klein, president, Qorvo Infrastructure and Defense Products, said: "Military personnel and first responders must communicate across many channels and have reliable access to wideband capabilities such as data, video and GPS "“ all in very challenging conditions. The higher voltage of our new transistors at three different power levels ultimately translates into more powerful, more capable and more reliable radios."
Qorvo's newest transistors are designed for space-constrained, mission-critical applications ranging from military and land-mobile radio communications to avionics and test instruments.
