Teledyne e2v HiRel Electronics has announced the availability of an industry leading, rad-tolerant, L- and S-band, low noise amplifier (LNA), model TDLNA002093SEP, that is ideal for use in demanding high-reliability space and radar applications where low noise figure, minimal power consumption, and small package footprint are critical to mission success.

This new LNA, developed on 0.15 μm, InGaAs, pHEMT technology, is available in a 6-pin dual-flat no-lead (DFN) 1.5- x 1.5-m x 0.8-mm plastic surface mount package.

The TDLNA002093SEP LNA leverages monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) design techniques that deliver exceptional performance across both the L- and S-band communication channels. This amplifier delivers a gain of 21 dB from 1 GHz to 6 GHz while maintaining a noise figure of less than 0.37 dB and an output power (P1dB) of 19 dBm. The device utilizes application-specific biasing and can be biased over a VDD range of 2.7 to 5.0 volts and an IDDQ range of 30 mA to 100 mA. A Class-K evaluation kit is also available for customer evaluation.

“Today we’re releasing our lowest noise figure LNA optimized for space and radar applications,” said Mont Taylor, Vice President and Business Development Manager at Teledyne e2v HiRel. “With a noise figure of less than 0.37 dB coupled with ease of use from a positive single-supply voltage, we believe this new product will enable system designers with a superior solution for both space-based communication, phased array radar, and communications system applications.”

The TDLNA002093SEP is TID radiation tolerant to 100 krad (Si) making it an excellent choice for satellite communication systems by increasing the power of radio signals with minimal noise and signal distortion.

Devices are available for ordering and shipment today, from Teledyne e2v HiRel or an authorized distributor, in commercial versions and with the option of Classes H and K-equivalent screening.

The LNA is shipped from Teledyne’s DoD Trusted Facility.
