Qorvo offers the new QPB9318 highly integrated front-end module with operation in the 2.3 – 2.8 GHz frequency range for TDD base station, wireless infrastructure, small cell BTS, and pre-5G/5G massive MIMO applications. This LNA module integrates a two-stage LNA and a high power switch in a dual-channel configuration.
The QPB9318 provides 1.3 dB noise figure for operation in the receive mode, and 0.5 dB insertion loss for operation in the transit mode. It utilizes Qorvo’s high performance E-pHEMT process while the pin-diode based switch supports input RF power signals of up to 10W average power assuming 8 dB PAR. The module is packaged in a RoHS-compliant, compact 5 mm x 5 mm surface-mount leadless package.
