GaN technology is suited to meet today's size, weight and power (“SWaP”) demands better than older technologies like gallium arsenide (GaAs), because GaN provides RF system engineers with the flexibility to achieve significantly higher power and efficiency, with lower part count, board space and resultant cost.
Several Richardson RFPD suppliers are driving innovation in the development of GaN discrete devices and modules, and the new GaN technology section of the website offers a range of power transistors, power amplifiers and switches from industry-leading manufacturers Empower RF Systems, M/A-COM Technology Solutions, Microsemi, Nitronex, TriQuint, and United Monolithic Semiconductors (UMS). The featured GaN products are suitable for a wide range of broadcast transmission, aerospace and defense, commercial and military avionics and radar, communications, test and measurement, small cell, and wireless infrastructure applications.
In addition to product and supplier information, the new GaN website section offers links to an extensive list of technical resources, from applications notes to brochures, selector guides, videos and white papers.
