DIE Amplifier supports Linear or Saturated Power Applications

RFMW announces design and sales support for a high power, GaN amplifier from Qorvo. The Qorvo QPA1017D offers 25 Watts of linear power at 25 dBc IMD3. Small signal gain ranges as high as 28 dB. Ideal for satellite communication and C-Band radar operating within 5.7 to 7 GHz, the QPA1017D provides the high gain, linearity and power required in these applications. Saturated output power is up to 50 Watts with 21 dB of large signal gain and > 40% PAE. To simplify system integration, this 4.79 x 6.45 x 0.10 mm DIE device is fully matched to 50 ohms. The input port is DC grounded for improved ESD performance while the output port is AC coupled with integrated DC blocking capacitor.
