TriQuint Semiconductor : TriQuint Releases New GaN Product Solutions That Increase RF Performance in Defense & Commercial Systems
06/17/2012| 12:10pm US/Eastern
TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc. (NASDAQ: TQNT), a leading RF solutions
provider and technology innovator, released four new gallium nitride
(GaN) devices at the IMS / MTT-S Symposium in Montreal, Canada (June
17-22). TriQuint GaN solutions improve RF efficiency, reduce overall
costs and enhance system ruggedness.
RF designers attending IMS / MTT-S can access public forums where
TriQuint will explore high performance GaN capabilities and ways this
technology can enable smaller circuits, as well as better-performing low
voltage and high power systems. GaN-based integrated circuits outperform
silicon, gallium arsenide and other semiconductor technologies. GaN
devices are also seen by the industry as key to future 'green' RF and
DC-DC power solutions that can reduce network electrical consumption,
enable greater range in electric vehicles or extend smartphone battery
"TriQuint is advancing state-of-the-art high frequency / high power GaN
research. Our internal product development programs are creating new
commercial and defense lower-voltage devices. Today we are announcing
four new GaN products enabled by TriQuint's high performance technology
leadership," said TriQuint Defense Products and Foundry Services Vice
President and General Manager, James L. Klein.
TriQuint GaN Solutions / Technology Leadership at IMS / MTT-S 2012
TriQuint is announcing three new GaN
power amplifiers that deliver greater efficiency, wideband coverage
and excellent performance for communications, defense and civilian
radar: the TGA2572-FL
(14-16 GHz), now available; as well as the TGA2579-FL (14-15.5 GHz) and
the TGA2593-GSG (13-15 GHz), available in July. TriQuint is also
announcing availability of the T1G6003028-FS,
a 30W wideband GaN packaged transistor that can cut the number of driver
circuits in a typical power amplifier design by 50%. Contract TriQuint

TriQuint GaN expertise is highlighted in a Microwaves & RF
magazine webcast exploring today's solutions and the technology's
future. TriQuint and other GaN leaders explore frequency, power and GaN
capabilities in this forum. Register
to view the webcast.
TriQuint GaN product innovation will be the focus of a presentation
hosted by Richardson RFPD in IMS / MTT-S Booth 1818 at 1PM on June 19.
TriQuint will lead a GaN product discussion on newly-released RF power
amplifiers, switches, transistors and integrated assembly / packaging
capabilities. See Richardson's list
of IMS / MTT-S activities.
TriQuint will also share its GaN expertise in a special
panel session hosted by Microwave Journal. TriQuint,
Strategy Analytics and other panelists will examine the global interest
in GaN, product innovation and ways advanced R&D is leading to new
discoveries. The forum will be in Room 516 of Montreal's Palais des
Congrès (8-10 AM June 20) and is open to all conference attendees.
