    Qorvo's TGA2958 is a driver amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's TQGaN15 GaN on SiC process. The TGA2958 operates from 13 - 18 GHz and achieves 2 W of saturated output power with > 21 dB of large signal gain and at least 25% power-added efficiency.

    The TGA2958 is an ideal choice to drive Qorvo's high performing Ku-band GaN HPA's allowing the user to operate the driver and HPA off similar voltage rails.

    Fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking capacitors on both I/O ports, the TGA2958 is ideally suited for a variety of military and commercial radar and communications applications.

    Lead free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation Boards are available upon request.
