    Qorvo's TGA2227-SM is a packaged, low noise amplifier offering high electrical performance, along with exceptional robustness to incident power. Fabricated on Qorvo's 0.15 um GaN on SiC production process (QGaN15), the TGA2227–SM operates over 2–22 GHz and delivers >15 dB small signal gain and >+22 dBm P1dB while supporting 2 dB mid-band Noise Figure.

    Robustness to incident power levels of up to 10 Watts is an industry first for a low noise MMIC amplifier and cannot be achieved in competing technologies. This supports potential system cost savings and board area reduction by removal of receive protection circuitry. This would also improve system-level noise figure.

    The TGA2227-SM is an ideal choice for radar and EW applications as well as high power communication systems and test and measurement across commercial and military markets.

    Lead–Free and RoHS compliant.

    Evaluation boards are available upon request.

    X-Microwave Design System

    This product is available as an X-Microwave Block (X-MWblock) for evaluation.

    X-MWblocks are RF and microwave "drop-in" components that can be used individually for prototyping or in production assemblies. X-MWblocks are easy to test, integrate, align, and configure to 60 GHz and beyond. No messy sweat soldering or silver epoxy processes are required. X-MWblocks are highly characterized with S-parameter models and connect with a patented solder-less interconnect technology.
