Qorvo offers the QPM2100 GaAs multi-chip module (MCM) ideally designed for S-band electronic warfare, communications, and radar applications in the 2.5 – 40 GHz frequency range. This device comprises a transmit/receive (T/R) switch, a low loss transmit path, and received path consisting of a low-noise amplifier, a digital attenuator, and a driver amplifier.
The QPM2100 MCM includes a digital step attenuator (DSA) with 31.5 dB gain control range, and it can deliver 14.5 dBm of power at P1dB with 34 dBm of output TOI. All functional MMIC blocks can be enabled or DC powered off with internal control circuitry. All control signals use CMOS compatible logic. The response time of signal control is less than 15 nS.
Additional QPM2100 features include:
- TX Channel Insertion Loss: 1.2dB
- RX Power at 1dB Compression: 14.5dBm
- RX Attenuation Range: 31.5dB
- RX Output TOI: 34 dBm
- Channel Switching Response Time: 15 nS
- TX Channel Low insertion loss : 1.2 dB
- Channel Isolation : 35dB
- Package Dimensions: 7.0 x 7.0 x 0.8 mm
