RF Transistor for Secondary Surveillance Radar Aviation: 1011GN-700ELM

This common source class AB, GaN on SiC HEMT RF power transistor has been specifically designed for Mode-S ELM applications, and secondary surveillance radar (SSR) applications. SSR allows air traffic controllers to identify, track, and measure an airplane’s location.

This RF transistor is based on GaN on Sic technology, make it an ideal choice for high-power electronics applications. It has a 700W output power, >21 dB (min) high power gain, and operates at 1030 MHz. The 1011GN-700ELM is offered in a single-ended package and is built with 100 percent high-temperature gold (Au) metallization and wires in a hermetically solder-sealed package for long-term military reliability.
