TriQuint's GaAs And GaN Devices Made For Defence Applications

The company's latest gallium arsenide (GaAs) and gallium nitride (GaN) improve efficiency and reduce part counts
TriQuint Semiconductor is releasing new phase shifters, high-power limiters and GaN MMIC amplifiers that can improve system performance, increase efficiency and reduce part counts in wide-ranging defence and commercial applications.

TriQuint's new GaN and GaAs product solutions are released in conjunction with the Defence Manufacturers Conference (DMC), taking place from December 2nd to 5th in Orlando, Florida. The firm's company representatives will be at booth #701 on Dec 3rd and 4th. TriQuint can arrange a meeting at the booth for interested parties.

The firm's three new high-power limiters handle up to 100W and protect sensitive circuits from electrical overload. Their low flat leakage shields low noise amplifiers while low insertion loss maximises efficiency with reduced noise. The devices are ideal for receive chain (Rx) protection in commercial and defence radars.

TriQuint's two new phase shifters cover 6 - 18 GHz, including X- and Ku-bands. They deliver wider frequency coverage than competing solutions for reduced part counts. Their 6-bit digital logic assures smooth, continuously variable time delay functionality. They are packaged for easy assembly in radar, electronic warfare and satellite communications applications.

The new GaN amplifiers cover a wide range of applications with greater output power at superior efficiency, which enables smaller systems and reduced part counts. TriQuint's new die-level amplifier delivers superior broadband power and efficiency; its two new packaged 50W amplifiers support key radar (9 - 10 GHz) and satellite communications (7. 9 - 8.4 GHz) frequencies.

TriQuint's Spatium high power amplifiers deliver a highly reliable, efficient alternative to travelling wave tube wave amplifiers for commercial and defence communications, radar and EW.

Spatium dramatically improves broadband RF power and efficiency through patented coaxial spatial combining techniques using GaAs or GaN MMIC amplifiers. Spatium supports the need for RF power at high efficiency from hundreds to thousands of watts.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
