MMIC Amplifiers


The QPA1017D is Qorvo’s MMIC power amplifier operating from 5.7 – 7.0 GHz for C-band radar and satellite communications applications. Fabricated on Qorvo’s production 0.15 um GaN on SiC process, the amplifier produces 50 W of saturated output power with 21 dB of large-signal gain while achieving greater than 40% power-added efficiency.

These GaN MMIC power amplifiers are ideal for applications involving test instrumentation, general communications, and general radar. Two models are featured below, a 25 Watt PA covering the 2-6 GHz frequency range, and an 8 Watt PA covering the 2-20 GHz frequency range.

Recent improvements on the CMOS Silicon process introduced many one-chip solutions to the market. DSP, Analog/Digital converter, Digital/Analog converter, Up/Down converter, VCO and PLL Synthesizers are one of those one-chip solutions in the market today. However, CMOS has some drawbacks in higher power levels of 10dBm+ and having a high noise figure.
