2-18 GHz 20 W GaN Amplifier for EW jamming, radar, and datalink applications.

The Teledyne RF & Microwave family of GaN-based amplifiers maximizes power density and efficiency, and establishes a new benchmark for small size in the 0.1 to 6.0 GHz range that operates over multi octave. With dimensions of 2.5"L x 2"W x 0.42"H at only 2.1 cubic inches, these modular, non-ITAR GaN amplifiers maintain the rugged design characteristics needed for harsh airborne and land based requirements.

  • FREQUENCY: 0.1 to 6.0 GHz
  • Multi Octave Wide Band-width
  • PACKAGING Connectorized
  • PLATFORMS: Ground, Airborne
  • APPLICATIONS: Demanding Military and Commercial
  • CALCULATED MTBF: 40,000 + hours @85°C

Depending on frequency band, output power ranges between 15 and 40 watts with minimum overall gain of 50 dB. In addition to normal DC connections via a 15 pin Micro D connector, other convenient control / interface features available via the connector include a TX enable / disable TTL command (100 ns TYP, 200 nx MAX); over temperature automatic shutdown and associated alarm (TTL); and the ability to monitor unit temperature via an analog voltage which is proportional to case temperature. Optimized to cover 5 common frequency bands, this line of GaN amplifiers can be easily adapted to comply with your frequency and power-level requirements due to the modular design technique used by Teledyne engineers.


The new line consists of five GaN wideband amplifier models. The five model numbers are TSA-213241; TSA-213242; TSA-213243; TSA-213244; and TSA-213245.
