RFMW announces design and sales support for a Ka-band power amplifier with 1W output power and integrated power detector. Designed using TriQuint’s power pHEMT production process, Qorvo’s TGA4544-SM supports 28GHz, point-to-point radio and Ka-band linear satellite communication systems in the 26 to 31GHz frequency range.
Operating from a 6V supply and 1100mA of current, the TGA4544-SM typically provides 32 dBm of saturated output power with small signal gain of 23 dB. Third Order Intercept is 41 dBm at 20 dBm SCL. Qorvo has designed this PA for ease-of-use so no matching components are required.
The TGA4544-SM is available in a low-cost, surface mount 26 lead 5×5 ACQFN package and is ideally suited for point-to-point radio. Additionally, the device is lead-free and RoHS compliant.
