The TriQuint TGA8310 - SCC is a monolithic low - noise distributed amplifier, which operates
from 2 to 20- GHz. Noise figure is typically 4 - dB. Nine 122- µm gatewidth FETs typically provide
17.5-dBm of output power at 1 - dB gain compression and 9- dB typical small signal gain. Typical input
return loss is 17-dB from 2 to 20-GHz. Typical output return loss is 20-dB. Ground is provided to
the circuitry through vias to the backside metallization.
The TGA8310 - SCC low - noise distributed amplifier is suitable for a variety of wide - band electronic
warfare systems such as radar warning receivers, electronic counter-measures, decoys, jammers, and
phased array systems.
Bond pad and backside metallization is gold plated for compatibility with eutectic alloy attachment
methods as well as the ther mocompression and thermosonic wir e- bonding processes. The
TGA8310 - SCC is supplied in chip form and is readily assembled using automated equipment.
