Abstract:

Auriga will produce a mast-mounted LNA that could withstand the high input power environment by utilizing a transistor typically found in power amplifiers; this transistor would also provide low noise characteristics. This novel approach was proposed and validated in Phase I. The enabling technology is Gallium Nitride (GaN), which is a relatively new technology. The high power handling capability of GaN is well-known, but the low noise characteristics have only recently been investigated. Studies have shown comparable noise performance between GaN and GaAs technologies.
