Qorvo has introduced a new family of 50V gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) transistors designed to accelerate the development of mission-critical tactical and public safety radios.
The new series feature a compact footprint in order to enable smaller next-generation communications devices. Qorvo says the transistors provide increased output power, reduced current loss and reliability. They also eliminate the need for more transistors. The transistors are wideband-matched to increase energy efficiency and allows for boards to be designed to be optimized for military and first responder devices.
The new transistors are space-constrained, mission-critical applications ranging from military and land-mobile radio communications to avionics and test instruments.
