Nitronex Welcomes New Vice President of Engineering
Mr. Runton has almost 20 years of RF power semiconductor experience with six years in GaN specific product development, including design, assembly, qualification and packaging.



Nitronex is the leading source for GaN-on-Silicon RF power devices
With the industry’s largest portfolio of discrete and MMIC GaN-on-Silicon devices, Nitronex power transistors are optimized for RF and microwave applications by providing the best performance/cost solution from 5W to 200W.

Nitronex has shipped over 650,000 GaN-on-Si devices to military and commercial customers.
Nitronex is presently the only fully-qualified supplier of Gallium Nitride-on-Silicon (GaN-on-Si) power transistors and MMICs for RF and Microwave applications.

Rugged, Robust and Reliable
In 2006, Nitronex released the first GaN qualification report to the industry.  Since then, Nitronex has continued to advance the technology and has announced a reliable 48V process and the ability to develop products that survive a 15:1 VSWR at all phase angles, while holding the device at 90ºC baseplate. Check out our reliability page for more information.

Process technology
Nitronex develops and manufactures a wide range of GaN-on-Si RF power transistors and MMICs for commercial and military markets.  Unlike digital CMOS, the silicon used by Nitronex has a high resistivity (10,000 Ω/cm) which provides excellent loss characteristics at RF and microwave frequencies.  Our current portfolio includes discrete transistor products ranging from DC-6 GHz, and 5W to over 200W of output power.  We also offer highly integrated standard and custom MMIC and hybrid products.

Nitronex Features 5W GaN PA MMIC and 60W Power Transistor
