The TriQuint TGA8035 - SCC is a two - stage GaAs monolithic amplifier designed for use as
a broadband general-purpose gain block. T wo 300 - µm gate - width FETs provide a 13- dB typical gain and
a 5- dB noise figure from 6 to 18- GHz. Typical output power at 1- dB gain compression is 12.5- dBm.
Shunt feedback is used around each active device to improve gain flatness and standing - wave ratio
(SWR). Ground is provided to the circuitry through vias to the backside metallization.
The TGA8035-SCC amplifier is suitable for a variety of broadband electronic warfare (EW) applications.
The combination of gain, power, and noise figure makes this device an exceptional post amplifier
following a low-noise amplifier.
Bond pad and backside metallization is gold plated for compatibility with eutectic alloy attachment
methods as well as thermocompression and thermosonic wire- bonding processes. The TGA8035 - SCC
is supplied in chip form and is readily assembled using automated equipment.
