Qorvo’s QPA0524 is a high power, packaged Ku-Band MMIC amplifier fabricated using Qorvo’s production 0.15 um GaN-on-SiC process (QGaN15). The QPA0524 targets the 24.25-26.5 GHz for 5G and Satcom band. It provides 400 mW linear power with ACPR of -30 dBc at 802.11ac 160MHz MSC9. Furthermore,

The QPA0524 can deliver output powers up to 5 W with 35 dB of small-signal gain and 23% power-added efficiency. To simplify system integration, the QPA0524 is fully matched to 50 ohms with DC grounded I/O ports for optimum ESD performance.

The QPA0524 is ideal for supporting 5G linear power, communications, and radar applications in both commercial and military markets. The QPA0524 is 100% DC and RF tested to ensure compliance to electrical specifications.

Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
