Milpitas, CA - May 12, 2020 –
Teledyne e2v HiRel,
part of the Teledyne Defense
Electronics Group, today announced a new family of 10 GHz RF Gain Blocks
using space-qualified InGaP amplifier technology.
Spearheaded by an 18.4 dB gain model, this new group of Gain Blocks,
TDGB010, is based on an indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) technology suitable
for both space and, optionally, defense applications. It achieves this through its
ceramic packaging and space qualification.
Teledyne e2v HiRel customers now have a standard
amplifier solution that stretches from L-band through X-band. Since a standardized
amplifier solution reduces the number of new qualified components that flight programs
typically require, it greatly simplifies the procurement process for components.
The X-band Gain Blocks are available in configurations of 13.6, 16.5 and 18.4 dB
which enable RF design engineers to more precisely configure the signal gain.
The TDGB010 50-ohm Gain Block incorporates proprietary Monolithic Microwave Integrated
Circuit (MMIC) design techniques and also utilizes a mature and reliable heterojunction
bipolar transistor (HBT) InGaP process. With space-flight heritage, the process
has shown to be radiation tolerant to 100 krad, making it an ideal choice for
satellites and other high-altitude applications. For more information, please visit
RF Solutions webpage on the Teledyne e2v HiRel website.
"Our ongoing expansion of RF offerings is designed to help our customers produce
high-reliability signal chains for the most demanding defense and space environments,"
said Mont Taylor, Vice President of Business Development. "Our new gain blocks offer
excellent gain flatness and high P1dB."
Teledyne e2v's Hi-Rel X-band Gain Blocks family is available now and is packaged
in a 2-lead, ultra-small, hermetic, gullwing package. Both the wafer process technology
and the package have space flight heritage.
