Shipboard Low Noise Amplifier Assembly.
Auriga will fabricate and test low noise amplifier (LNA) monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) and modules capable of operating over a wide range of temperatures, including cryogenic. LNAs at cryogenic temperature have better noise performance (by more than 4x). This will significantly improve receiver-chain sensitivity, allowing greater range of detection and better resolution. The frequency band of interest covers HF through C-band, making it suitable for a wide range of applications and insertion opportunities. The use of Gallium Nitride (GaN) will enable very high linearity and robustness, eliminating the need for front-end protection circuitry. This will make the front-end smaller, less expensive, and lower loss. The combination of wide bandwidth, low noise, high linearity, small size, and low cost provides an enabling technology for future receiver front-end systems.
