Qorvo - QPA0812

Qorvo's QPA0812 is a packaged, high-performance power amplifier fabricated on Qorvo's production QPHT15 (0.15um) pHEMT process.

Covering 8.5 - 10.5 GHz, the QPA0812 provides 1 W of saturated output power and 24 dB of large-signal gain while achieving 48% power-added efficiency.

Packaged in a small 4 x 3 mm plastic overmold QFN, tight lattice spacing requirements for phased array radar applications is easily supported. RF input and output ports are matched to 50Ω and include integrated DC blocking capacitors.
