The "EL" series of three galliumarsenide (GaAs) field-effect transistors (FETs) provides +42.5 dBm output power at 1-dB compression. The TIM6472-16EL operates from 6.4 to 7.2 GHz with 11.0 dB power gain at 1-dB compression and power-added efficiency (PAE) of 37 percent. Its sibling, the TIM7179-16EL, covers 7.1 to 7.9 GHz. It typically provides 10.5 dB power gain at 1-dB compression with 37 percent PAE. Finally, the TIM7785-16EL spans 7.7 to 8.5 GHz while providing 10.0 dB of power gain (typical) at 1-dB compression. It offers PAE of 36 percent.
