    Qorvo's TGC4403 is a MMIC that combines a frequency doubler with a 3-stage amplifier, operating at input frequencies of 8 to 15 GHz. With greater than 30 dBc suppression measured at the output between the input frequency and doubled frequency, the TGC4403 achieves 22 dBm output power with 2 dBm input power.

    This performance makes this doubler ideally suited for point-to-point radios and Ka band satellite ground terminal applications. The TGC4403 utilizes Qorvo's robust 0.25um power pHEMT process coupled with 3 layer Metal Inteconnect (3MI) technology. The TGC4403 provides the frequency doubling function in an extremely compact (less than 1.8 mm²) chip footprint.

    Each device is 100% DC and RF tested on-wafer to ensure performance compliance. The device is available in chip form. It is lead-free and RoHS compliant and has a protective surface passivation layer providing environmental robustness.
