QPA0016 RF Amplifier by Qorvo

The QPA0016 from Qorvo is a GaN MMICPower Amplifier that operates from 13.75 to 14.5 GHz. It delivers an output power of 15 W (~42 dBm) with a small signal gain of 35 dB and a power-added efficiency (PAE) of 32%. This amplifier is fabricated using Qorvo’s production 0.15 µm GaN-on-SiC process (QGaN15) and has third-order intermodulation distortion products of 25 dBc. It is fully matched to 50 ohms with DC-grounded I/O ports to simplify system integration and provide optimum ESD performance. The amplifier has on-chip blocking capacitors following the DC ground on the input and output ports and is 100% DC and RF tested to ensure compliance with electrical specifications. It requires a DC supply of 24 V and draws a drain current (Quiescent) of 259 mA.

The QPA0016 is available in a package that measures 7.50 x 5.00 x 2.45 mm and is suitable for use in SATCOM and datalink applications.
