    Qorvo's TGA2958-SM is a packaged Ku-band amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's 0.15um GaN on SiC production process (QGaN15). Operating over a 13-18GHz bandwidth, the TGA2958-SM delivers 2W of saturated output power with 20 dB large signal gain and > 25% power-added efficiency. This, along with >25dB small signal gain allows it to support a variety of low power Ku-band systems or as a linear, high-voltage driver for Qorvo's line of high power Ku-band amplifiers.

    Packaged in a 4x4 air-cavity QFN package for high performance and easy handling, the TGA2958-SM is fully matched to 50 ohms with integrated DC blocking capacitors on both I/O ports for simple system integration. This makes for an ideal general purpose RF amplifier which can provide needed functionality across both commercial and defense related markets.

    Lead free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation Boards are available upon request.
