    Qorvo's TGA2512-1-SM is a packaged X band balanced low noise amplifier (LNA) with AGC amplifier for electronic warfare (EW), electronic counter measures (ECM) and radar receiver or driver amplifier applications. The TGA2512-1-SM provides excellent noise performance with typical midband noise figure of 2.3dB, and high gain, 22dB from 4 - 14 GHz.

    The TGA2512-1-SM is designed for maximum ease of use. TGA2512-1-SM can handle up to 21 dBm input power reliably, while the build-in gain control provides 15 dB of typical gain control range. The part can be used in self-biased mode, with a single +5 V supply connection, or in gate biased mode, allowing the user to control the current for a particular application.

    In self-biased mode, the TGA2512-1-SM achieves 6 dBm typical P1dB, while in gate-biased mode the typical P1dB is over 13 dBm. The part is lead-free and RoHS compliant. Evaluation boards are available.
