Toshiba Enhances High Gain C-Band GaAs FET Product Line with New Power Amplifiers

Optimized for High Gain and Efficiency; New Amplifiers Targeted to Microwave Radios and Block Up Convertors

MONTREAL, June 20, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — �2012 INTERNATIONAL MICROWAVE SYMPOSIUM, Booth #2710 Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC*) and its parent company, Toshiba Corp., today announced the expansion of its gallium arsenide field effect transistor (GaAs FETs) lineup with the addition of two new devices optimized for power efficiency.  The new power added efficiency enhanced GaAs FETs are targeted to microwave radios and block up convertors (BUCs), and will be exhibited in TAEC's booth #2710, at the 2012 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium from June 19 through 21 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Toshiba's new C-Band GaAs FETs for microwave digital radios support point-to-point and point-to-multipoint terrestrial communications, and BUCs support satellite communications.  The TIM5359-16EL and the TIM5964-16EL operate in the 5.3 to 5.9 GHz(1) range and the 5.9 to 6.4 GHz(1) range respectively.  The TIM5359-16EL and TIM5964-16EL have an output power at one-dB gain compression point of 16W, or 42.5dBm (typ.), linear gain at one-dB gain compression point of 11.5dB (typ.) and power added efficiency of 38 percent.

"High gain and high power added efficiency features will help designers build energy-efficient microwave radios," noted Homayoun Ghani, business development manager, microwave devices, for TAEC's Discrete Business Unit.  "By combining our new 16W product along with the linearity enhanced broadband C-Band 4W microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC), Toshiba's TMD0608-4, a simple two-chip design solution is provided for microwave radio applications.  The improved gain will help microwave designers reduce the number of parts in their overall system."
